Ascent Trip Report

Parked at Roy Taylor Forest Overlook. Mile 433.3 on the BRP and Locust Gap on the topo. Faint trail heads downslope from the SE end of the overlook. I hiked it for a short distance avoiding brambles and thorns on my left before heading upslope thru easily traveled evergreen forest.

On the way back down from the summit I wandered over to an open area to the east of the overlook and perhaps less than a 100 feet above the road. This area featured moss covered rock and a variety of azaleas and rhododendron in full bloom. Very colorful on a cloudy/foggy day in mid June.
