Ascent Trip Report

Thought this CHP would be more interesting as it is off a historic trail started in the 1800s by Vanderbilt but the trail does not summit the peak it swerves away at the last moment making it a brief bushwhack with no views. But a county HP right off the same parking lot as Pisgah so great extra credit. We were going to be late to the airport so I ran up and down this very fast.
