Ascent Trip ReportPart of a Rocky - Tray - Brier Creek Bald peakbagging excursion. Returning to the GA list after a bit of a hiatus feels pretty good!
Brier Bald is easily accessible from the AT at Tray Gap. Taking the road from Tray Gap, you'll come upon a sharp turn that has a side road leading towards Brier Bald. Follow this up past a nice little camping spot and a little over halfway up the mountain, where it will turn into a herd path. The herd path is pretty well marked with the exceptions of some grown up brushy areas (it is a herd path after all) but if you push throw the briers you'll easily pick up the trail. All in all, a nice easy summit that I had expected to take much longer...
