eric-grizBeautiful day hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 1, 2013


I was expecting cooler temps and packed my hat and gloves. I didn't need them though as I hiked in short sleeves. I started from Balsam Gap.

After coming from the Craggy Gardens picnic area on the MST, this ascent was extremely difficult!! I was worn out when I got to the top, but I made it.

Dottie Little Tent

Last time I was there I saw a makeshift grave complete with cross and flowers, looked like maybe a pet. Weird! Anyway nice place close to Asheville and it is really cool in heavy fog walking through the laurel tunnels.

GAHikerGirlSteep Climb and a Bit Difficult to Follow at Times...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 10, 2005


Bagged this one by starting at Mt. Mitchell ranger station and taking MST south-west, so we approached it from the north east. Much better than heading north.

CortezRoute Climbed: Walker Falls to MST then bushwhack to the summit. Date Climbed: January 9, 2005  Sucess!


This was a relatively difficult route for this mountain. There is a much shorter and easier route from Greybeard View overlook via the MST.

Lesson taken from this trip: HEATH BALDS AREN"T BALD!!
