Ascent Trip ReportThanks to the excellent directions from previous chp ers that got me uneventfully to the trailhead. Under better conditions this would be a wonderful hike--well constructed and well maintained trail (not a single downed tree to hop) up to a nice view tower at top of Ga.'s 2nd highest peak. But I walked in steady rain to a socked in peak. Despite the lack of any view I did climb the small lookout tower. I was glad for the excellent trail conditions coming down that allowed me to maintain a fast pace to get out of the rain without fear of falling.
