Note: This is an "EXPLORATORY" trip. This means that there are parts of this trip, or perhaps the whole trip, that is new to your Trip Leader(s). However, they are confident that this will not be an issue.
This note is here so that you can make an informed decision. When a Trip Leader isn't personally familiar with a trip, there is an increased chance of things not going as planned and you need to be prepared. The Trip Leader may have additional details in the itinerary.
We will start the hike at Track Rock gap and hike up to Brasstown Bald. The first 1.5 miles to the Buzzards Roost Ridge is a steep 1800 ft elevation gain. Next we pass Chimneytop Mountain, gaining another 788 ft elevation to reach Brasstown Bald. We will have lunch at Brasstown Bald, then return back to Track Rock gap.
