First ascent was part of my 2000 AT thru-hike. It was cloudy with low visibility. Went back last fall (visiting on a fall weekend is a mistake) and got great views and autumn color too!

TJ311Attack of the Aphid  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 9, 2007

We hiked from Newfound Gap to Clingman's Dome via the Appalachian Trail. Along the trail, we noticed so many large trees had uprooted and fallen over. The ranger told us it was Aphid outbreak. It was great weather going up, but once @ the strange summit, it started to pour. Visibility was about 1 foot and it was a cold rain. We hitched a ride back down to our car in the back of a pick up truck.

Rainy day. Climbed up the weird lookout tower, where I could see nothing, then quickly retreated and kept hiking.

People, dead trees and a space ship looking structure at the top. I guess if you're going to the Smokey Mountains you've got to experience this.

Drove up to the vast parking lot, and then walked the rest of the way. One tough peak. First state high point though.

This was part of an 11 state highpoint trip that started in St Louis and ended in Missoula Montana. Great spot to stretch the legs!

Did Clingman's Dome the easy way shortly after getting hitched. It was really windy, and it was a shame to see what was happening to the trees at the summit, but the views were still great.

Easy hike with no view because of the haze caused mostly from pollution. A fun way to stretch the legs, however.

For being such a lame hike I was hoping at least for a view - but no such luck...super dense fog and even some thunder and lightening! Fun climbing (I mean walking) with my friends anyway!

wear flip flops and bring along a Big Gulp from 7-11.
Also hiked up 8/4/91 and 4/1/98 on my AT Thru-hike. Definitely a beatiful area.

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.

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!
