I am coming into NC for a few days on business, and I'm going to stay to do the Mt. Mitchell Loop (Click Here for another person's trip report) on Friday 10/23. It is approximately 17 miles of mountain hiking. The only difference from the trip report that you will find through the link above is that I plan to skip out on the Colbert Ridge Trail. Instead, I plan to summit Cattail Peak and then double back to the Big Tom Gap Trail to the Buncombe Horse Trail to head back down the Mt. Mitchell trail to the parking lot. Alternatively, I'd be willing to consider taking the Buncombe Horse Trail all the way to the road depending on how steep the Mt. Mitchell trail is on the way up.
