Having not been to a highpoint for a while, it was good to be back on the trail. The CT Hp is a short but fun hike, up some rocky slopes to the top. When we neared the trailhead we had to wait for a stuck DHL van that was blocking the road. After a short time, the van was pushed out,and we were on our way to the parking area.
The hike was very enjoyable, and we passed a couple of hikers on the way down, but it was getting late in the afternoon, kind of late to start the hike. We made it up and back before sunset, and had a very enjoyable time of it. Once again, our Winger Hp guidebook was a very valuable asset to have in my pack.
One thing I was impressed was with the peaks in that area. I expected it to be fairly flat, but was surprised by the local terrain of peaks and valleys.
