Ascent Trip Report

Tourist Hike - College buddies on break from Summer Session. Climbed the 0.6 mile trail up and back from the parking area. Still one of the better views in Georgia but it simply is not a wilderness experience. Perhaps will redo as a summit hike to make my GA 4000 foot list clean.

US State HP #2

Climbed it from the bottom on 4-21-10 to erase the blemish of a drive up hike. See trip report on 4-21-2010 for longer more rewarding ascent.
