Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from Unicoi Gap to Chattahoochee Gap and back, climbed Blue mountain and Spaniards Knob on the way. Did not get good numbers because my GPS ACTED UP! We left the trail at around 2.4 miles to climb Spaniards Knob and hiked up the east ridge to the SE summit then hiked to NW summit and descended the NE ridge. The way up was good with only a few briars near the SE summit then an easy hike to NW summit. The ridge we went coming down was easy with just a short steep area about halfway down. We then hiked to Chattahoochee Gap and back to car, for most of the hike it was snowing pretty good and it was beautiful!
