From Stepps Gap  Sucess!

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.

4th High Point  Sucess!

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

Mt. Mitchell trail  Sucess!

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.

Run for the Summit  Sucess!

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.

Tougher than expected  Sucess!

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.
