Ascent Trip ReportTom Layton's excellent report says it all. We went to the end of the old road and found a gap in the rhododendrons, so the short bushwhack wasn't too bad at all.
The sign at the entrance of the Blue Ridge Assembly states that the grounds are only open to registered guests from Memorial Day to Labor Day. However, the very friendly woman at the front desk told me that this only applies to the lower grounds. The trail leading to Old Windy is open to hikers all year.
My GPS observations also agree with Tom - Jesse's High Top was 22 feet higher by my reading.
