Ascent Trip Report

I joined THOG event - Roan Mountain backpacking trip on 6/6-6/7/2015. At Day 1, we started hike from Carvers Gap on Rt143. And hiked to Round Bald (5807 ft), Jane Bald. At the trail junction, we took non-AT which led to Grassy Ridge Bald (6165 ft) for lunch break. After we took a break here, we went back on the same trail to reach to the train junction, then took right turn on AT. We continued hiking, passed Yellow Mountain (5,371 ft). Our Day-1 destination is big field campsite with big barn. At Yellow Mountain Gap, we took blue blazed trail to reach this campsite.
