Trail had numerous trees fallen on it from recent storms, and more recently cleared by chainsaw. Indeed the sound of a chainsaw droning on could be heard in the distance while ascending from Unicoi Gap.
Started at Unicoi at 10 AM. Reached summit just after 1 PM. Stopped to rest at summit, and turned back. Reached the car gain at 5, just before dark. Rainstorm moved in an hour after I left.
