Ascent Trip ReportParked at Trackrock Gap. Started at Arkaquah Trailhead across the street from Trackrock Gap parking area. Ascended 1426'+ over 1.5 miles to Buzzard Roost Ridge. Well defined and maintained trail. No visible blaze markings. Easy to follow. Trail ascends and then follows Buzzard Roost Ridge to Cove Gap where Locust Log Ridge picks up.
A little snow and ice on the ground, craggs and other exposed rock surfaces.
Still on the Arkaquah Trail and after Low Gap we hiked past the summit of Locust Log Ridge Mt and then hooked back to touch the top. Much easier doing it this way versus hiking off trail at first opportunity. Easy hike up. No trail. No blaze. Stop 2 of trip.
