Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up via the Alum Cave Bluffs trail. Went to all points while on the mountains. Convinced by some backpackers to take a different trail down, and then hitchhike back to where we parked. Took a much longer way down, but it was worth it. Made it to Newfound Gap and got a ride back to the original trailhead.
