Ascent Trip Report

Stayed at the Alpine Inn Blowing Rock NC started at 7:44 Garmin stats 3.34 mi 882 vertical 1:52 minutes including stops. No views but I will be back to do this one again!This trail has got to be one of the nicest trails I have ever hiked. There is a membrane buried in places to prevent erosion, steps placed at inclines ,meticulously crosshatched logs so they are not slippery, and great mile markers every quarter of a mile.
