Well, one highpoint has to be the ugliest. This one gets my vote. The peak is adorned with several communication towers and an abandoned fire tower. It is wooded and there is no view.

The cleared area around the towers is weedy and littered with broken glass and used condoms. Unfortunately this type of stewardship of natural areas is all too common in Eastern Kentucky.

The directions in the Holmes book, (first edition), are quite clear and although he didn't mention the final left turn after the FAA facility, the way is obvious. A U.S.G.S. marker is found on a nearby rock outcrop.
