Started around 8:45 AM from the parking lot at Ace Gap TH. Cool day (59F) quickly turned warm for me ascending the mountain, but the views of Cades Cove valley covered by fog were worth it. Thankfully saw no bears and only two cars. I lost track of my distance a bit coming down and overshot by .5 miles but still w/in the FKT time at 2:06.
