Ascent Trip Report

The reason why I drove as far south as Roanoke, for the most picturesque spot on the AT. It did not disappoint. Easy 3.9 mile hike up to the overlook. Sweeping vistas. Got to watch a guy fly a drone off to get unique photos. Had a PBR that a thru-hiker gave me. Stayed there for about 1.5 hours talking with a thru-hiker. Incredible views and worth doing again.
