Ascent Trip Report

Drove up to Blackburn (took wrong road at first). Didn’t realize how close the north high point was to the intersection of the side trail and the AT. Went all the way to the south high point first. Got away with the wrong shoes as the trail was pretty smooth. Lots of poetrntial spots in the ridge off the trail, peakbagger coordinates were not so helpful.
