Ascent Trip ReportThis summit is a little tough to find. It's just off the main trail that runs from Mt. Mitchell through Mt. Craig and on to Cattail Peak and points north. Although other summits in this line (Craig, Big Tom, Cattail) have pretty obvious markers, plaques and the like, this one takes a bit of poking around. But in the poking around, there are some good views of the other peaks and ranges in the area.
