Not for the hiker, but worth the time to see the view. There are quite wonderful ridge trails right nearby that offer solitude and dramatic wild vistas.

I hated this walk up but I was interested to see the area. Incredible how many whiney out of shape people were there that day.

rathvon350Animal in a zoo  Sucess!


I climbed this mountain a few years ago. It was the pinnacle of a 5 day trip in the Smokies. Hiking up to the parking lot there was a woman standing in the middle of the trail just staring at us. I thought there was a bear behind me. I guess she just couldn't believe we had walked all the way up there. Oh yeah, and visibility was zero!

Date Climbed: May 30, 2006


I climbed this one from Elkmont campground. Wasn't expecting the heat humidity to be an issue and ended up dehydrating myself... stupid mistake. Either way I made it to the top. Great hike. Hiking from a lower elevation is worth it, you get to enjoy the dense forest and the nooks between the mountain ridges.

Okay, not exactly. The dying conifers near the summit are rather alarming.

Date Climbed: Jan 7, 2006


Been to Clingmans Dome a bunch of times, always with a crowd. The huge stands of dead Fraser Firs always amaze me. Climbed from the parking lot, not sure I'd want to exert more effort for the scene at the top.
