Ascent Trip ReportThis was Day 1 of a planned three day hike on the AT South, from The Priest Shelter, where I left off on my southbound trek. On day 1 I hiked from the upper parking at Crabtree Falls on Meadows Lane (4x4 recommended) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJH57tchvjk and hiked the last 0.5 miles up to the junction with the AT. From there I hiked south 3 miles to Spy Rock. Spy Rock has a number of very nice campsites (no water or privy) and a rock scramble up to an outstanding viewpoint. This is well worth the hike and can be done as a day hike. There is closer parking down the hill about 1.1 miles from the junction with Spy Rock Road near the Fish hatchery.
