Next to the Highest in TN Date Climbed: Sep 1, 1996
Do not believe this is a distinct peak since the prominence is not big enough from Clingmans Dome. Did Collins, Love, Clingmans, Buckley trip among other combinations. Great view from bald area looking west and south.
Part Of A Hiking Trifecta!!! Date Climbed: May 23, 2009
I summited Mount Buckley, Clingmans Dome, and Mount Love all during the same hike. I enjoyed Mount Buckley, especially along the "Dome Bypass Trail", due to the lack of hikers (as compared to the hiking logjam at Clingmans Dome, for Memorial Day weekend).
