|Currahee is a simple place- i like it a lot. however, i am easily pleased. you get to look around at the surrounding countryside: the rolling hills and farms and the brick wall faces direct west so the sunsets are great. with easily placed topropes, its a great place to introduce people to the sport.|

Does anyone know if you can camp at the top of the mountain? I was checking out the area recently and saw a couple fire pits on the backside. I figure someone was camping there but didn't know if it was "allowed". I want to go climb there and wanted to camp but didn't know if I was going to run into any issues other than the gate closing at some point.
Thanks for your help.

To access the trail to the top of Curahee. Park on Hwy 184 0.9 miles south of Dicks Hill Pkwy. There is a old polling place on the west side of the road with dual entrances and parking. There is an obvious trail built by the boy scouts that takes you to the top. Turn right at a boulder with a little mini cave to access the Slab Area and Buzzard Wall. Keep going straight another minute and then turn left to access the Brick Wall
Edit July 2013: Polling building and gates are gone.

|I added some photos describing the approach from the lower parking lot. If you are a climber, this should be the way you take. The hike takes about the same amount of time as driving up the road to the top. It also saves a lot of wear and tear on your car. Look for the horseshoe shaped parking lot with the yellow gate on the right side. In years past, the road to the top often is closed due to the road being too wet.|
