Ascent Trip Report

We set out with ambitions to go to Brasstown Bald and hike to another one of the high points from there, but found that Brasstown was closed. Instead, we went to Vogel State Park and bought some maps, walked around Trahlyta Lake, and ate lunch. On the way home, we explored some of the FS roads just happened to stumble upon a spot where the Coosa Backcountry Trail crosses a FS road and realized it would only be a short, 1 to 1.5 mile hike up. So, we kind of cheated... but we still bagged another peak!
