Highpoint #17  Sucess!

Decent hike through a diverse forest, but disappointed to share the summit tower with maybe 50 other people. That and the loud road took away from this one. 7 miles out and back on the AT from Fork Ridge.

Clingman's Dome Summit edit  Sucess!

Completed this during the pandemic. Road to the dome was closed so hiked/ran the road to the summit, watched the sunset and ran down in the dark. Did this with my 2 20 something children so it was a very special day.

HP# 27  Sucess!

Too bad it's so touristy. I stepped off the paved trail on to the AT to cross the highest point on the AT and although it was like I-95 on the paved trail not a soul was on the AT.

Heading north  Sucess!

Did this as part of a two week backpack of a section of the AT before there were such things as through hikers and trail names. We had the trail to ourselves until we came to Clingman's Dome. Alone again after Newfound Gap.

Highpoint # 15  Sucess!

Third of five in a highpoint and whiskey trail driving vacation. Fantastic hike on the AT from the Fork Ridge Trailhead parking lot. Happily there was some visibility from the tower ... just stunning!

Although I could have easily hiked less, I managed to eek out 6.1 miles hiking from the parking lot to the top of the tower and back via a little of the Appalachian Trail.
