Ascent Trip ReportI reached the summit via Appalachian Trail from Newfound Gap in Great Smoky Mountain National Park. There was a decent amount of snow on the trail but the sun was shining and it wasn’t too cold outside. I was the only hiker on the entire 7.9 mile ascent but there were some workers fixing a radio tower on top. The road to the top is closed this time of year and therefore allowed for a much more enjoyable hike without crowds of tourists, which normally flood the Great Smokies.
