Kentucky Peakbagging – Robe Mountain (1,527ft) and Joe Lick Knob (1,483ft)

We hiked into the woods near Blue Lick Creek, and up to the side of Basin Mountain until it started getting really steep. Then we traversed on an old logging road grade, and hiked steeply up to the north summit of Robe Mountain, a peak I’d never been to before. There were excellent views of Berea back to the west. From there we followed the ridge south to Robe Mountain and briefly picked up a trail to a small saddle. We then left the saddle and descended steeply back to our ascent route, and made it back to the car.
On the way home we stopped to tag the summit of Joe Lick Knob, another prominent hill just to the north that I’d never visited before.
