Ascent Trip Report

I hiked this as an in and out along the AT. There were many fabulous views along the mostly open terrain. We also encountered the wild horses that the area is famous for. There was a dusting of snow at the summit where we encountered several large rocks which it was impossible to tell which was the actual summit.
