Ascent Trip Report

From South Wolfpen Ridge, we continued north on Jacks Knob Trail to the Brasstown Bald parking area, then took the 0.6 mile paved trail to the summit and observation deck, where excellent views awaited. Took in the view for a few, then ate pizza out of the wind and cold, then hiked back down the way we came.
