Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up on the AT from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Easy to follow the AT in this area. Plenty of uphill, but a very pleasant hike. We paused at the top for lunch, then continued down to Salt Log Gap (well signed), then returned to the Parkway. Warm day, lots of mushrooms along the trail. Summit is open, providing some views.
