The iconic road that used to be the main access to Mount Mitchell; now an iconic trail that does the same.

Features Fall Colors · Views · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Most of the trail is in private bear hunting land. Be aware of hunters, trucks, and ATVs from October to January.

Description

This historic path is a western NC classic. The trail is very rocky in most parts and very technical despite its width. During the winter, the trail can have a lot of ice on it, and during the summer, it can be wet and muddy in those same parts.
