A friend and I did a point-to-point hike, climbing many peaks along the way and finishing atop Mt. Mitchell. I should do it again some day...

Hiked up from the Black Mountain Campground. Saw many who drove up at the summit. I'm not a big fan of developed summits at all but it is still a beautiful area and range. Saw a couple of red-spotted newts in the red eft phase; such a cool little critter.

Hiked up the Mt. Mitchell trail from Black Mountain campground. Beautiful day but the bugs were really bad at the summit. Overall, a great hike.

Hiked up from Black Mountain Campground. It was sunny and bright, then an hour in a bad thunderstorm hit. By the time I hit the summit it was clear again. I was the only one on the trail, but there were quite a few people at the top. Overall great day.

Second time visiting this highpoint. Came out to see the newly built up top. I liked the older lookout tower better, just had a more rustic feel. New one is still nice though.

Fourth of a 6 state HP weekend. Flew into Knoxville, then hit the HPs for TN, GA, SC, NC, KY and VA. This is my 43rd state HP. A bit foggy but I had the summit to myself.

Climbed the long way from Black Mountains Campground up the Mitchell trail. Only saw six people on the trail either coming or going, but saw 50+ at the top.

I trudged through snow for two hours on my wife's birthday (and got in mucho trouble later for affected negligence)but it was totally worth it. Nice trail, great views, and almost complete solitude. I hope to hike this one many times over and hit some of the neighboring peaks as well.

A quick drive up while touring the mountains of North Carolina for the first time. I hope to come back sometime and do the Black Mountain Crest, truly one of the "must-do" hikes of the East.....

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.
