Rockingham County Highpoint Trip Report

Not a hard one to get to, overall. VA 257 is paved all the way to the turn-off for the ridge road (19.0 miles from Dublin, VA). Not sure exactly where FS924 begins, since it is not signed. The National Geographic map implies it is at the GWNF boundary. The gravel road (FS 85) had nothing shouting, "Oilpan!" but I kept the speed down. The BM could easily be under one of the fire rings. I wasn't going to dig for it. Nice views.

Note: The National Geographic map (#791) says that FS 85 is open from early October to early January. Evidence from previous trip reports seems to contradict this.
