Ascent Trip Report

Thick frost and ice in and around Cades Cove. Gravel road was closed were it meets the main road, so we parked at the visitors center. Then walked down gravel road to start of trail. From there on to the summit after 2-3 hours. Temperature in the 40s, with constant wind at summit. Returned down same path.
