Ascent Trip ReportAfter visiting Thunder Hill (q.v.,) took AT from Parkway south to summit area of Apple Orchard Mountain. This was a pleasant hike with some interesting rock formations (and on our visit, some interesting ice formations). After reaching the clearing atop Apple Orchard, visited the obvious summit rocks, rested, took pictures, then headed down to our car waiting on the Parkway. I'd previously hiked to the top from the south, so it was nice to approach from the north this time.
