Ascent Trip ReportThis was a VERY COOL highpoint! Nice and brisk hike from the parking lot, although during the main part of the day you can hook a shuttle to the top. Met the nicest group of rangers at the top. Nice museum and displays at the summet as well. I have some serious doubts about how authentic the locomotive is that is on display. Just seems to be made of an overwhelming amount of plywood.
They have an official marker located behind a locked door. They were very willing to unlock it so that I could take a pic.
Highpoint #1 out of 4 for the day.
#2 South Carolina
#3 North Carolina
