Botetourt County High Point Trip Report
Apple Orchard Mtn (4,225 ft)

I walked up the concrete road, as it was getting a bit late in the day. It is a pleasant walk, and I have the
distinct impression that the "Area Closed" sign at the gate implies that vehicles are not welcome.
The AT passes right over the mountain, so the entire area could not be closed.
Saw two whitetails on the way down. The large FAA facility dominates the hilltop, but the highpoint is a
rock just beyond the fenced area.
