Ascent Trip Report

On way to sister in laws 50th birthday party and had little time, so I was dropped off near the AT parking lot - I used Hideaway Road (across from Freezeland Rd) at about contour 2100 as my TH and ran up the public roads and crossed Freezeland to the gravel maintenance road up to the towers. Along the way the spring morning was beautiful with the woods full of new light green leaves. Winding around the towers the peak is near an abandoned tower house in the woods that made for a creepy summit photo... the AT is nearby and one can use the nearby AT parking lot of an ascent as well. Ran down and was picked up and off to the party.
