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.

Bajumbug4th High Point  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2012


Perfect weather and stunning views from the top. In my travels to State High Points, I began to realize that most of the fun isn't standing on top, but the wonderful sights on the back roads as I travelled to the summits

Made it to the top in 2 hours and 20 min. Solo hike. Came down on the old trail. Uneventful. The only scenery was at the top.

Blue Ridge PW closed between Asheville and Mt. Mitchell. By the time I circled around it was late. Ranger waiting by the gate. I was the only visitor there. Ran the short trail to the summit and back.

Hiked this with my dad from Black Mountain Campground. Was expecting 3000 ft gain and 11.2 miles. Ended up being 22 km and 1140 m gain, according to my GPS. Nice day out and great summit views.

triviasteveWhirlwind trip through the south  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 17, 2013
A great drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway (one of my favorite roads) and got to the parking area. In the weeks prior, I had hiked 100 miles on the Appalachian Trail, so I was in pretty good shape to make the sprint to the top. It was a cool day, and somewhat cloudy, but I (stupidly) did this one wearing flip flops, shorts and a t-shirt. Thankfully, I wasn't going to be long up there. Other people thought I was nuts, and said so. I love the South… people definitely speak their minds.

Great views and I'll someday be back here to do this when I do more of the AT.
