Write Up:
Wonderful day! Wonderful group! Wonderful hike! What started out from Unicoi with rain and threatening storms turned out to be a perfect day for hiking. Make no mistake, this was a tough D5 hike, but a strong group was able to tackle three hard mountains, Brier Creek Bald, Rocky and Tray. Rocky Mountain twice! Brier Creek Bald was a short side trip from Tray Gap down a closed forest service road, then up an old logging road and finally through the briars and blow downs to reach the summit. The views were a bit muted due to the trees, but thanks to winter conditions, there were no leaves to obstruct seeing nearby Tray and even Brasstown Bald was viewable. Many thanks to all who attended, Aaron, Ann, Ralph, Uma, Mark K, Paresh, Fay and Nahid. Looking forward to seeing you all on the next adventure!
