Ascent Trip Report

Visting the parents, decided to run up this hill I spent a lot of time on as a kid. (I helped build the summit trails when my dad worked for TN State Parks.
Pretty straight forward, drive out 11W from Knoxville, and follow the signs, Park is now a Knox County Park. On this trip, I decided to go all the way out to the Eastern Flank of the mountain. Good views to the South/Appalachians
