Mineral County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: September 10, 2008
Followed Mike Schwartz's report from April 2001. The evening before, I drove on
WVA 42 and located a new cell tower and, according to my topo, it appeared that
from the tower a shorter bushwhack could be made directly to Black Rock.
The foreman at WVA DOT area allowed us to park overnight in a secluded area and told
me there was road from WVA 50 at the eastern edge of the scenic overlook for
It is a mowed and easy road to the cemetery that Mike
refers to in his report. I must have fallen a half dozen times on this hike as
the rocks and briars seemed to be my down fall.
It took me about 3 hours and 15 minutes for this HP.
