Ascent Trip Report

We parked at Jacks Gap and followed the trail to Wolfpen Ridge. The trail passes the peak (South Wolfpen Ridge) at some point. There was a short jog to a lookout near the top. Continuing on we descended to the parking lot for Brasstown Bald, walked across and took the macadam path to the tower. Early start so we avoided some severe thunderstorms that occurred later. It was misty / cloudy but the sun poked through at one point and made for an awesome photo.
