Ride the ridge of the mountain east to Pigeon Creek or Beech Creek National Scenic Area and Beech Creek Botanical Area, translated for the common man, "more woods", or ride the ridge of the mountain west to the old fire tower or eventually to Honobia, OK..
Gorgeous views from several beautiful hightops. A few scattered homesteads. Pine and hardwood forests. All remote areas. Eventual drop from mountain tops to creeks.
