  • Interesting and educational at the same time, as is always the case with the pavement ends articles.

  • We have been backpacking there the last weekend in October for over 25 years. We have even come to know other regulars that have been there multiple times on that weekend with us. As you can imagine, the fall foilage is usually at its peak. Good article, but the south edge of the summit gives a great view of the rebuilt powersite at Tom Sauk, as well as a feel for the northern Black river valley. We usually traverse the southern side, as you have to go down, and then up to the summit. Part of the Ozark Trail is on the western side of the mountain. Keep up the good work.
