| Remaining Elevation:||662 ft / 202 m (71% left to go)|
Ascent Trip ReportStopped at the Yankee Horse Trail parking area off the Blue Ridge Parkway to see if Rocky Mountain can be bushwhacked from the west side. There is a trail to the top of Wigwam falls, and some trails above it, including what looks like an old road grade. I turned back because it was wet and I would have been a mess. EDIT: I downloaded the local Garmin 24K topos to my GPS and they show a dirt/gravel road that connects with the access road to the communication towers. This road does not appear in MyTopo. I am going to try and get back here next week to see if it will go.
