Tamassee Knob Trail and Ticks Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2006
Ticks covered the trail and our legs by the time we were finished. The views were decent and hiking is always worth the work, but I would have to say this hike was my least favorite so far. There are far more better views out there without ticks covering everything and a more defined trail
Route Climbed: Tamassee Knob Trail. Date Climbed: 10-21-2005
Since Tamassee Knob is located at the edge of a broad plateau, the trailhead begins at about the same elevation as the summit. But one drops time and again into gaps along the way so that there are a number of steep climbs before you gain the final summit. The hike ended up beging a lot longer and a bit tougher than I had supposed.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
