Comments: After parking our vehicles we walked the road and entered the woods where the road makes a sharp curve downward, also a gated road to the left. We whacked the ridge of Black Mt. through thick woods and a hobblebush forest. Managed to find some herd paths and overgrown logging roads. After much wandering around the flat summit we found the jar and signed in. I looked for viewpoints near the cliff, but clouds and rain blocked the views.

We then began our whack to Green Mt. Open woods all the way to Green, avoiding cliffs to the south. We easily found the summit jar on an obvious bump. The jar was wet inside, so I replaced it with a new jar and paper. We then began our slog back to our vehicles, hiking into the col between Black and Green Mts. We trekked through wet areas and thick forests of hobble bush, climbing over north arm of Black to avoid wet areas. We found lots of well "maintained" herd paths (thank you moose) which saved us from hacking through extensive hobblebush.
