Ascent Trip Report

The Nat Geo Trails Illustrated map showed a road going ALMOST to the summit, and no trail heading up from there. Unfortunately, the map wasn't QUITE accurate. A road went right to a chainlink fence around the mass of transmission towers. Got out of the car, walked around, got back in and drove down. Ugly summit. Felt more like a highpointer than a hiker on this one . . .

One of these days we'll have to go back and bushwhack from the A.T. up through the woods, at least as far as the fence . . .
