Ascent Trip Report

As far as I can determine, Cattail Peak is tied with Balsam Cone for the 5th highest named summit points in North Carolina. The peaks are adjacent to each other and located along the Deep Gap Trail. The trail goes right next to the highest point of Balsam Cone, but reaching the summit of Cattail Peak requires about 250 feet of moderate bushwhacking. Surprisingly, the summit of Cattail Peak does have a benchmark.
