|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|

Ascent Trip ReportHiked out and back on the Appalachian Trail from Blue Ridge Parkway's Thunder Ridge Overlook. Rolling trail is very easy to follow in this area. True summit might be large rock at N 37.549347, W -79.474906, but I walked around the area to look for other possibilities as well. A cleared grassy area near this rock would make a good tent site (aside from the mountaintop location).
