With lesdubois. Took the Mt Mitchell Trail from the Black Mt. Recreation area. Few people on the trail, but lots of people on the summit.

June 2002, in my early days as a hiker, I drove along the Parkway and hiked lots of trails. This one was a doddle, but worth the views.

Favorite highpoint of the trip by far!! Absolutely loved the drive. The trees were frosted from an earlier storm and it was really windy and super cold on top. I was also surprised to see the resting spot of Elisha Mitchell. I don't know why I never ran across that info. But I'm super jealous he gets to be buried on top a mountain he loves.

Easter backpacking trip with RamblinWreck. Hiked up the southern side trail. Last time I bring crappy food on a lazy trip.

Spent Easter up in God's creation, still had some solid snow on the ground with some fairly large snow drifts (for NC). The "climb" up and down was nice and clear, great hike.

Awesome drive in to Mt. Mitchell SP. Drove up to the parking lot and took the short trail up to the summit. Kind of a gray day but there were still great views and it actually made some of the pictures more interesting. Loved the rhododendrons which were just starting to bloom. Photo-ops everywhere! Can't wait to come back and hike more of the trails when I have more time. This was # 3 of 6 State HPs I did in a 3 day span.

Hiked up from the Black Mountain Campground on a very hot North Carolina day. Stayed at the Mount Mitchell Campground and hiked down the next day.

Great views on two beautiful days.

Hiked up from Black Mountain campground, where I was camped for the weekend. Great weather and an awesome hike. Lots of people at the top, but only saw one or two people on the actual trail.

I hiked up the Old Mitchell Trail from near the restaurant in a complete downpour with another hiker from Boone, NC. We couldn't see anything from the top. The rain stopped by the time I got back down. My rain gear had kept the rain out, but held in the sweat, so I was still soaked. HP27

Drove up to the lower parking lot, walked up some steps to the upper parking lot, walked past the concession stand than made the final push up the paved walkway to the summit. Beautiful scenery even in the cloudy, gray day. Missed seeing the rhododendrons in bloom however.

Hiked up 2 miles from the ranger station on the old mitchell trail. Highest mountain east of the mississippi river and the best view I have seen so far.

Got to the top and there were at least 50 state troopers and Miss North Carolina to boot. That road really lets anyone up, but I also saw a family carry their grandfather up to the tower as part of his life's wish.

I had planned on hiking the trail from the restaurant, but after high pointing in Georgia and South Carolina earlier in the day and too much sightseeing along the Bluegrass Highway, I once again ran out of time, so I highpointed from the parking lot. Mount Mitchell and the surrounding area of Asheville are beautiful areas. I'll definitely be back.

rained the whole time. one of maybe 2 people at the campground. only one on the trail. i learned never to wear jeans in the rain while mountaineering. small part of the trail looked like a lake that was over a foot deep. had to walk through plants and over a fallen tree. couldn't see 30 feet ahead of me on the summit. otherwise it was still a cool time.
