Ascent Trip ReportI drove up at night and slept in the parking lot. At 7:14am I was awakened by a man and his wife and 2 daughters who arrived in a pickup truck. I followed them to the summit which was about a 3 minute walk from the parking lot. Not much of a view but boy were these nice people. They offered me hot coffee and a biscuit with sausage. We had a great time of sharing. I was blessed to meet these folks. They told me that they used to "court" at this mountain top years ago. They would go to the store, buy a soda and a candy bar and walk the trails on Sassafras Mountain.
