Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the Two Mile Run Overlook and walked back north to the Rocky Mount trailhead. Took the trail to the summit area, as close as it comes to the summit, then bushwhacked to the true top before going back down a short ways and enjoying the views from some of the rock outcrops, then returning. The weather started cool but warmed nicely. The fall colors had made a good start, especially the black gum - a majority of their leaves were red. Some clouds but mostly clear. Great views from many spots along the trail.
