Nice hike from Jack's Gap! Sure glad I remembered the bug spray; it's definitely needed.
It was a picture postcard day. Just perfect. The views were just incredible...
Gated due to ice and snow so I hiked up the road. Had the whole mountain to myself up there on a perfect morning.
Very touristy feel to it for a state highpoint. I love the panoramic views from all points of the tower, though.
Nice well kept area. Took the bus up from the lot. The USGS marker is inside a locked door at the center.
Great hike on a perfect day!
Remnants of Tropical Storm Nate really kept me from enjoying this summit. It was cold and windy with no visibility but what a great experience...I will have to come back!
Barely made summit before sunset. On a work trip, I rented a convertible Mustang and ran upstate to make this sunset. Saw a few bats flying on the way down.
At least I walked the final half mile. Lots of folks out today since the weather was great.
Third of a 5 HP long weekend. Alone at top, 21 degrees with nice wind. Great views, except for the multiple fires in the visible area. On to South Carolina from here...
Did this first thing in the morning, and had the entire place to ourselves. Views were really good, but lots of fires in the area.
On a 3 week RV trip. Hit 4 state highpoints. Dogs in tow. Took the short hike up from the parking lot. Beautiful day and great autumn colors. Stayed at a campground about 8 miles away and we could see the summit tower from town (Hiawassee) Pretty amazing.
Great views in all directions. Hit both Towns and Union County HPs.
This was our 13th Highpoint and the first stop on our week long trip of six Highpoints. We made the short hike from the parking lot to the summit. There is a shuttle that can run you to the top.
I started up from Jack's Gap at 6 am, hoping to catch the sunrise at the summit... but I got to the top an hour late. Oh well. The views were still quite nice in the morning light, and I had the high point almost to myself.
Drove to parking lot and hiked the rest of the way up
Really hot afternoon hike. Great views, but really hazy in the heat.
Nice views after a short hike
