Hiked up the trail with my wife. I carried my two year old daughter on my back. It was a sticky day, but the wind at the summit helped cool me down. Hiked back down after scrambling around on the rocks.
I climbed Sharp Top during a steady snow. The views from the top were worth it, even on a cloudy day.
on this usually very busy mountain. It's vast vista's eluded us due to a heavy blanket of fog but made interesting photos of the neighboring mountains piercing through.
Looped this with Flat Top and Harkening Hill to make a nice trail run.
Did it carrying my 3 month old daughter in a pack on my back. Rode the shuttle back down.
Climbed Sharp Top attempting to see the sunrise but missed it by 20 minutes. The clouds formed a dark ceiling 500 ft above the summit which really made for some beautiful photos.
This was a fun easy hike. A guide book I looked at described this as a strenuous trek. It was easy, even with snow on the ground. Took 70 minutes to reach the summit at a leisurely pace. Nice views.
Was driving the Blue Ridge Parkway and decided to stop and do this one just because it had my name on it. Nice little climb and a great view from the top.
Nice hike, but the summit was in clouds. Hope to be back to see the view!
I finally climbed Sharp Top on Friday, November 19, 2004. I'd been to the Peaks of Otter area several times without scaling the summit. Having arrived late, I made a dash for the summit at 4:00 pm and did the mile and a half and 1,400 vertical feet in about 45 minutes. It's a really classic eastern peak, and I want to go back and savor a longer trip to the top.
