Hiked from Cosby campgrounds up Snake Den Ridge on the way to Tricorner Knob Shelter. 4.5 miles never felt so long! Very glad to meet up with the AT and get some shut eye under the stars. Hit Mount Guyot the next morning before heading back down to camp.
Snake Den Ridge En Route to Tricorner Knob Shelter Date Climbed: Apr 15, 2011
Like most high peaks in the area, the summit is covered with fallen debris, dense tree stands, dead trees and (blueberry?) bushes. A small cairn marks the start of an overgrown manway that attempts to navigate this mess. The ascent from Cosby was longer and more difficult than expected... overall a rewarding dayhike from the campground to Tricorner Knob shelter. Slept under the stars.
