weeds19Foggy morning  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 25, 2003


We drove into the area in the dark and found a camping spot along a nice dirt road. In the morning we woke up and did the short hike to the summit in extremely foggy weather. Visibility was pretty low, but the summit was still a very interesting spot.

I never thought that I would be the one ignoring the "no trespassing" signs on a mountain, but seven hours of driving and two and a half on the trail are too much of an investment to not summit. my summit photo has me standing next to a crane!

I was in the area for the Grandfather Mtn. Marathon. Had to come up Mt. Mitchell to see the view. Unfortunately the top was fogged in. Did a few mile circuit on the trail through the spruce trees along the summit ridge.

Via the trail from Black mtn. Camp. The girl and I got an early start but near the top, she wasn't feeling too hot. We got to the top and bundled her up, but she wasn't feeling up to hiking back, so I ran like a superstar (or maniac if you may have happened to be on the trail at the time) back down the trail to retrieve the truck and tear up the BRParkway. I did cover the 6 mi in about an hour...not bad, huh? Got to the parking lot as it was getting dark to find her sitting in a Park Rangers' truck with the engine running and the heat on all toasty. Seems like they talked to her a few minutes after I left. Needless to say, my ankles will never be the same.

Went up the Mt. Mitchell trail - which was actually a pretty cool hike! Super foggy and humid, and the last part of the trail was closed off for construction. Had to get the highpoint, so we snuck around...quick ran up to the top...took some pictures and got out of there!! Had a blast - pretty area!

Came southbound on the Mountain to Sea Trail to find the last .3 miles closed off. Hiked around to the parking lot on the nature trail and found it closed from that side too. Well, I had come too far not to see the summit so I went around the gate with another like minded individual and made it to the top.

Peak 1 of 6 in Southern Sixer Six Pack following Brasstown Bald, Union Cty (GA) HP and Wolfpen Ridge. I ignored the "No Trespassing" signs to the summit - guilty as charged. Didn't want to be denied my 10th HP. Check out my trip report. Must say this was and still is my only 9 Peak/HP day.

ShawnaMount Mitchell - July 2004


Hiked Mt Mitchell with a friend when I first moved to NC. If I remember correctly, we took the Mt Mitchell Trail. It started out as a cloudy day and quickly turned into a very rainy day and poured on us most of the way...still a fun hike though.

Hiked the New Mitchell Trail, to the summit area which was closed due to construction and renovations. Bushwacked a little bit and snuck to the summit while evading the construction people and park rangers. All in all it was a nice hike.
