This beautiful, high, cone peak has a great view. Amazing scenic sub-alpine area in the south.

Best view along the ridge from Craig to Cattail. The clouds parted long enough on our return trip for some nice panoramas. Fun peak.

Date Climbed: May 23, 2009

Considering this peak shares my first name, I kept telling people that I would summit it even if it were in terrible weather conditions. Both things came true: I summited the peak and the weather took a nasty turn... raining hitting me sideways. However, my GPS device and map showed Big Tom only a short distance away so I continued on to there before turning around. Plus, I had already summited Mount Mitchell shortly beforehand.

After visiting Mt. Mitchell, we headed out on the Black Mountain Crest Trail to Cattail Peak & back. Beautiful weather. We loved the views, but certainly (since we live in an arid area) we really enjoy the rain forest.

Partner: Husband.

Crossed (rain, mist and sleet) on my loop---12 hrs. 1 hr to Horse Rock trail, then up, over to the Bowlen's Creek end of Ridge Crest Trail, turned and went to Mitchell, before coming back to Deep Gap, down most of Colbert's Ridge, and then 'bushwack' to Locust Creek and White Oak Creek.

Did this with my niece during our near disastrous trek on the deep gap trail. Caught one good view and then came that 30% chance of precipitation.

Summitted w/ my friend Bill. Clouds hit the top of the mountain every once & awhile. Trail is currently being repaired from Mitchell summit. Good views of the "J" that makes up the Black Mountain range. Tagged ("Big Tom") too ... which is a smaller summit 15 minutes from Mount Craig.

Have done this as part of a backpacking trip but it's one of my favorite dayhikes if I'm near the Asheville area.

CortezRoute Climbed: Black Mountain Crest Trail Date Climbed: June 4 2005  Sucess!

Cortez

My wife Jennifer and I hiked Mt. Craig early in the summer on our traverse of the Black Mountain Crest Trail which begins at the Mt. Mitchell picnic area. This continuously rolling, steep and slippery trail (especially past Deep Gap) hits 7 named Southern Sixers (Mt. Mitchell, Mt. Craig, Balsam Cone, Cattail Peak/Potato Knob, Winter Star Mountain, Gibbs Mt. & Celo Knob).

The views on this were some of the best on the east coast. Late spring & early summer are good times to attempt a traverse of the North Carolina Blacks. The wildflowers at this time are showing their colors, the ferns are unrolling & the Balsam forests are alive with all kinds of wildlife. Also, the brutal heat and humidity that characterize summer in the South usually does not set in, in earnest until mid-June.

Mt. Craig had some great views and was a fun experience. The 19 mile loop was long and tiring but Mt. Craig was a highlight of it. Check out my trip report on the Mt. Mitchell page.
