Beautiful trails. I'm going to pay for that elevation gain in the morning, though.

Excellent hike to summit. Icy patches on trail on upper 1/2 of trail. 15 degrees F on the summit clear and no wind. Amazing.

On a 3 week RV trip. Hit 4 state highpoints. Dogs in tow. The summit was very crowded today at 2:07 pm. Blue sky and pretty autumn colors

The clouds were moving in and out on the day I went to the summit. I had better views from lower down. However, it's great to have gone to the top of the highest U.S. peak east of the Mississippi.

Date Climbed: May 6, 2016


Climbing this mountain was like going back in time from May (at Black Mountain Campground, where I began) to February (up top). I spotted my first snow-patches around 5000', and by the time I reached the summit the ground was completely covered in it. Fortunately for me, it was all soft and slushy, but if it'd been just a bit colder I would have sorely missed my micro-spikes. The summit was sealed in clouds (again... three times I've been up Mt. Mitchell and it's never given me a clear view), but the views were nice on the way down.

jakegarberRan out of gas  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 1, 2008
We left ashville to drive up to the top and about half way up I noticed the gas light was on. I new we were already screwed so I just drove to the top so I could get my highpoint in hoping we could find people to help up there. It was a very foggy day and we didn't see anyone until the very top. There was a work truck with a few guys there and they took gas out of a bobcat and siphoned it into our tank to get us to the nearest gas station. How nice of them and how lucky for us!!

Date Climbed: Oct 8, 2011


After driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, something everyone might want to consider at least once; the highest point east of the Mississippi was of course irresistible! Started at Stepps Gap to at least make a little hike of it; albeit all on road or trail. The eastern mountains have a charm all their own.
