    I got the Optimus clip on windscreen, too. With my Pocket Rocket, at least one leg will touch the windscreen when folded out. I'm not sure if that's a bad, good, or neutral factor in terms of heat...

    The privy was closed during my stops there for lunch on a couple of day hikes this fall. There is also signage there to that effect.

  8. Is Indian Grave Gap Road passable year round by normal vehicles?

    I may be answering my own question. I drove to its intersection with Route 75, about 2 miles trail west of Unicoi Gap.

  9. Is Tray Mountain Road (FS 79) passable year round by normal vehicles?

    I was hoping to drive to Tray Gap to start my next day hike. My car is NOT 4 wheel drive or high ground clearance. I've driven it (slowly) on other FS roads, like 42.

    I honestly have never seen...

    Thanks for the suggestion. My goal this fall has been to day hike the GA AT (and the approach trail) in a series of out-and-backs where I can get to trail heads in my own car. So, the Jack's trail...

    Great tip. Thanks. The more I hike other trails besides the AT, the more I enjoy the contrast and change of pace.
