Prince William County High Point Trip Report
Bull Run Mountains - BM Jackson (1,279 ft)
Date: June 5, 2001

From I-66, exit 40, take US 15 north. Multiple towers soon become visible ahead and to the left on Bull
Run Mountain. About 5 3/4 miles north of the interstate, go left (west) onto CR 701/Logmill Road. Go 1.5
miles and turn right onto CR 600, then left onto Ridge Road at 2.3 miles. Follow Ridge Road and park
about 100' below a locked gate at 3.8 miles. This gate is posted and secured with 25 locks; count 'em, a new
personal record! The summit is a 75 ft gain, five minute hike. Boulders near one of the microwave towers
look natural and highest. I found no BM.
My impression is that legitimate hikers would not be chased. There are houses along the road, right up to
the gate, and local residents surely must walk the road. There is a partially overgrown road beyond the
towers that may provide unposted access to the summit, but I didn't search for its terminus.
