Ascent Trip Report

I did this as part of a 5-mile loop. See Holston River Mountain trip report.

From the Bays Mountain Park nature center, the most direct route up Bays Mountain would be 2 miles roundtrip via the Bays Ridge Road (limited to bikes and hikers) with a rise of 450 feet. The park map lists Bays Mountain at 2285 feet but my GPS showed a 2320 contour. There is another small 2320 contour about 200 yards SE on the ridge, but I think the trailside point is higher.
