Ascent Trip Report

USGS:Sam Knob map. Bottom of last parking lot at Courthouse Valley. Past picnic table, trail begins. Tread around (hopefully not over) an abundance of toilet paper until the trail peters out on the side of Tanasee Bald. Light bushwhacking brings one to the Tanasee summit. I must have either hit a game trail on the way down, or the correct trail petered out. Had to shoot an AZ to Herrin and bushwhack quite thickly (one of those "why ever did he go THAT way?")to summit.
