Ascent Trip Report

... just barely able to drive to trailhead with some fill repairs to the road, gotta stop that could have walked the extra mile. I hiked/jogged late in the day to the summit following along AT to a final turn-around back to Potts Mtn Trail connection, an old road fading away to an at times faint woods path along ridge with views south reaching to the summit. Following trail back led on past Fire Tower's foundation on Wind Rock and an improving roadway trail before reconnecting to AT.
