Ascent Trip Report

From the overlook parking nearest the peak. I drove about a quarter mile up the dirt road that runs parallel to the Parkway between the Parkway and the AT. From there it was a short bush whack to the AT which I followed to the top. On the way down I bush whacked down to the road closer to the peak shortening the return trip a bit.
