Ascent Trip Report

Took 19 N from Atlanta to State Road 180 (also clearly marked with Brasstown Bald signs.) Take the 180 spur to the left which leads to a parking lot. The road to the peak is closed to unauthorized traffic.

You can hike the 0.6 mile trail to the top, we were short on time so for $3 the park service provides a shuttle to the top.

A friendly ranger unlocked an access door so that we could photogragh the survey marker.
