Ascent Trip ReportI was able to drive from Nimblewill Baptist Church up to Nimblewill Gap in my Subaru Impreza without any issues, although it is slow and requires caution in many places. There are a half dozen good forest service free campsites along the first two miles of the dirt section of the road. From the gap, I took the AT approach trail about two miles to Springer Mountain, and then went over Black on the way back. The trail now skirts Black to the northwest, about 250' below the summit. The thorns on the northeast side of the peak were not bad, but they were much worse on the west side as I bushwhacked back down to the trail.
