Ascent Trip Report

Started at the parking area east of Sam Knob and followed the standard trail west then turning and climbing to summit. To be certain I touched both possible summits. Trail was easy to follow -- eroded in places. Vegetation along the trail was wet in places. After going to the top of Sam Knob, Tanya and Anna returned to the car while Jeremy and I headed for Chestnut Bald.
