TonyNSPart of a multi day trek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 11, 2016


We stopped and had lunch on the bunion on a gorgeous day in the Smokeys and were treated to some amazing views. I really want to climb it again in the winter and see a snow covered Le Conte and Kephart from the bunion.

A nice hike up Kephart Prong past the remains of the CCC camp. I hiked down via Dry Sluice Gap and Grassy Branch.

I took the same route after climbing the bunion. Awesome scenery through several levels of the park.

A perfect late afternoon hike my first day in the area. Missed the crowds, and had a great view.

The views are great, and if you get an early start you can miss most of the crowds.

Did this as part of a multi-day trip through the park. The climb from Newfound Gap is tough, but it is totally worth it.

mountainhareBeating the haze  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2013


Started north from Newfound Gap before sunrise to try and see the sunrise from here. The early start was worthwhile; I was rewarded with great views before haze eventually took over.

This was my second time to the Bunion. The weather was beautiful and sunny, the views were clear and deep, and good company made the day much better than the first. :)

Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2012


Summitted while doing a 30 mike trip along the AT from Newfound Gap to Davenport Gap with my brothers. Spent some time on Charlies Bunion to take in the views.

mlandau3An Impressive Pinnacle  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 22, 2011


We hiked from Newfound Gap. It was really hazy. After we got to the top of the Bunion, we continued north on the AT for a few miles and then turned around. The haze lifted as we approached the Sawteeth and the Bunion appeared very impressive indeed.

7.9 mile hike from the lookout down the AT. Recommend you scramble up above the bunion, great view looking down. Hit some rain on the way back, but not too bad

Not the best views... but typical for April. A beautiful dayhike to "the Bunion" from Newfound Gap.

montanachrisHappy New Year  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 1, 2007


What better way to bring in the New Year than to take a nice day hike. I remember really enjoying being able to hike without 'post-holing' through deep snow in Jan. I had moved to NC from MT just a couple months before this hike. The trail cruises through spruce/fir forest which reminded of MT. It's nice to have a little of bit of the old with the new!

Good easy day hike - fall colors just barely still hanging on. Good one to do for my first time in the Smokies.
