Ascent Trip Report

3rd Peak in our Black Mountain Crest Trail hike.

This was a quick down and up from Mount Craig and sported less expansive, but still impressive. The tree blight unfortunately gave us more to see on top. Trail here is more worn and rocky/rooty. Plaque on top explains who Big Tom was....
