Pittsylvania County Highpoint Trip Report

Ryan Bowles' directions are quite sufficient. Smith Mountain Road is marked as Route 626 and Jasmine is 773. The gate was locked today (and on July 18, 2004 when I was in the area but didn't have the 2 hours to walk the road). No clue as to when it is open. Hiking up you will see the radio towers as you come around the cirque. It is sort of steep but not as bad as it looks like it is going to be. HP was obvious on the right. Found the benchmark. Area on top is rather flat so actual highest point is a judgment call.

About an hour up not pushing because of the heat. Cool day, maybe 10-15 minutes less.
