Ascent Trip ReportFrom Brasstown Bald parking lot, hiked with Jenny up the trail to Brasstown Bald, then took trail south out of parking lot to top of South Wolfpen Ridge and back, then went west on the trail leaving from next to the restroom to Chimneytop Mountain. Both South Wolfpen and Chimneytop are highest points along undulating ridges, so make sure to take a GPS with the coordinates pre-programmed so you'll know when you've arrived. South Wolfpen's summit is along the trail, Chimneytop's is up a short scramble <100 feet south of the trail.
