mm 3.2 AT meanders toward Whitetop Mtn from Buzzard Rock. The AT does not go to the summit but bears to the right and re-enters the woods.  An old route of the AT leads to the summit where  there are communication towers and parking.  This picture was taken on a clearer day than the previous one (Feb. 2012). Courtesy pjwetzel@gmail.com
