Ascent Trip Report

... drove across the Cohutta Wildlife Management Area west to east reaching Bald Mtn on the way to Cowpen Mtn, the road between these two was rough but mostly dry from earlier icy conditions (met mtn bikers) and fortunately the coming days snow storm, tho the easiest roadway access to Cowpen is from the east, getting to the trailhead is the most difficult aspect of this hike as once there I got up and back in under an hour with a short bushwack from the East Cowpen Trail.
