Ascent Trip Report

Holy switchbacks Batman! Started at Jack's Gap (34.847773, -83.798723), where 180 Spur turns off from 180 to head up Brasstown. Trail climbs around 1500 vertical feet in about 1.5 miles (I lost count around 25 switchbacks) before getting to the top of the ridgeline and leveling off. Decent winter views from the top. There'a not a real distinct peak, but the trail follows the ridge, so you're sure to hit it. Slight downhill to the Brasstown Bald parking lot. About 2.2 miles.
