Ascent Trip ReportParked at Huckleberry Parking Area off the Cherohala Skyway. The hike was about 1 mile each way and the trail is graded and vehicle-wide. The summit is bald but visibility was down to 50 meters. Wind was around 30 mph and the rain was starting to freeze so I didn't stay too long. The hike was easy and I will come back for the views in clear conditions.
