Nice warm Saturday and a nice hike to the top of Mount Defiance. Parked in Lot A, took the white trail to green then to red.
Beautiful day for a hike. Lots of people here as is the usual. Decent amount of packed snow and ice on the other side of the mountain (blue trail).
Rained right before we got there so the trail was a bit slick. Started in the Appalachian Trail parking lot on 23. Hiked the App trail to Monument trail. Stopped at High Point Monument for some pictures. Phone said it was about 38 degrees there. After that continued Monument trail out the back of the parking lot, looped the Swap Trail, and came back around on Monument Trail, and reversed course back to the parking lot. Total trip was recorded at 9 miles.
Beautiful day and trails were empty
