I had a great winter hike up the Profile Trail to MacRae peak. Plently of snow and ice and great clear winter views along the way.

This is a great all day hike. It has some ladders and cables in place to help with the steepest parts. Lots of different scenery. Even though the owners of the mountain have turned it into a business it is still worth doing.

I loved MaCrae Peak.

I've hiked it twice, once in May 2001, and again in July 2002.

The closest thing to a horn we have in the eastern US. Grandfather/Tanawha is, to me, the most physically imposing peak in the entire Appalachian chain. The view of it from the Linn Cove Viaduct is nothing short of breathtaking.

However, the view from the peak, looking toward Banner Elk, is horrifying. You can see urban sprawl in the form of houses, neighborhoods, golf courses, apartment blocks, roads, etc. creeping inexorably into the forests that were once unbroken. It's pretty disgusting.
