Ascent Trip Report

A long drive up from Asheville NC. We did not anticipate a near 60 mile round trip. We were on near empty when we got to the top. We walked the near 3/4 mile paved walk to the top. Weather iffy, not as nice views as a sunny day would have provided. We coasted nearly 20 miles back to conserve gas. Our suggestion is to top off before the road climbs up into the clouds.
