Ascent Trip Report

The AT summits Cloudland Mountain (6200) at the site of the old Cloudland Hotel. There is a slightly higher knoll (6210) SW of the parking lot at Tollhouse Gap, at the reservoir marked on the topo.
The first summit is 2.4 miles on the AT from Carvers Gap and the second is a short distance N of the Cloudland Trail, about 2.6 miles from Carvers Gap and near the parking lot for the rhododendron garden.

I did this one as part of an 11.6-mile hike to bag three adjacent SB6K peaks.
