Ascent Trip Report

Doesn't seem like a busy trail... I saw no one else the entire time I was there. Trail is fairly wide the whole way, seems to follow an old woods road. The steepness is never extreme, just a lot of long moderately steep sections. Although it would seem like an easy, straightforward hike under most conditions, I did it in the afternoon after doing Panther/Giant Ledge earlier in the day and the uphill grinds felt MUCH tougher than expected (I was probably pushing the pace a bit too much though). Views from the highest accessible point of the fire tower were good. The spring about a mile from the top was dry. Most interesting part of the hike: as I sat up in the fire tower, I could hear the forest below me on the summit area gradually come alive with the sounds of animals moving/thrashing around through the woods and vocalizing. The sounds got intense at times, almost like a jungle. Very cool.
