Ascent Trip Report

A nice hike up from Carvers Gap through a pine forest to a grassy bald with excellent 360 views! Would have liked to hike farther on the AT but didn't have enough time. (Was going to hike Roan High Knob, but found that the road to Tollhouse Gap was closed Oct-May and also has a $3 fee in season)
