Ascent Trip Report

Big loop to bag a whole lotta 6000 footers. Started at Black Balsam Parking Area (end of FS816) and hiked over Black Balsam, Tennent, Grassy Cove Top, and Cold Mountain before doubling back and using the Ivestor Gap Trail to net Chestnut Bald and Sam Knob before returning, tired, to the car.
