Orange County High Point Trip Report

Cowherd Mtn (1,197 ft)

Take route 33 east from Barboursville or west from Gordonsville. Turn north on the gravel road/driveway just west of Aerie farms (white fence). Take this road to the end. I asked permission to park from the owner of the next to last house, who I believe also owns the last house.

Bushwhack uphill to the highpoint. It's posted just above the last house on the dirt road, but I was told by one person that no one ever goes up the mountain, and the owner probably won't care. He was unable to remember who the owner was, and nobody else I talked to knew. The summit is fairly flat and densely forested with lots of undergrowth, so hike around until satisfied.
