Ascent Trip Report

I turned east off 75 onto Mill Creek road and followed it up the draw, making a slight left onto FR 2612. A careful driver in a passenger vehicle should be fine coming up this way. I parked at the fork at 2,786' and hiked past the gate on the left branch. 20 minutes of walking on this closed road took me to Addis Gap and the AT. There I turned north on the AT and started to climb in earnest. About 2 miles from the car I hit the southeast ridge of Double Spring and turned off the trail. I followed some faint deer trails through thick brambles to the top. I returned the way I came.
