Ascent Trip Report

Trail run/hike, Left from Unicoi Gap. Followed the AT over Blue Mountain and Red Knob. Went around to the north side of Spaniards because it looked like an easier ascent (see GPX). It wasn't bad and there was a lightly worn trail to kind of follow to the summit. I still put my pants on but honestly it would have been pretty comfortable still without them. Taking the short cut south and then east on the way back I ran into more briars, and I was glad to have the pants here. Then took the AT back to the trailhead.
