Ascent Trip Report

Took the usual route on the AT from Hog Camp Gap. The trail and the open area on top of the mountain were more crowded than usual, probably because it was a beautiful Saturday. Six people on horseback were on the trail and in the open area, but never very near the summit. Great views of several other 4000'+ mountains (and lower ones) from the top. Lots of goldenrod blooming.
