Ascent Trip ReportTook the road up to the summit from NewFound Gap. Hiked the paved path from the parking lot to the summit tower. Me and my wife were out of shape at the time so we took it easy and made it up in about a half hour getting passed up by a few blue haired hikers and a man that appeared to be 400 pounds. I'm not proud of this but we will be back since we are both in substantially better shape and will probably hike from the New Found Gap parking lot. My first state HP.
