Quick links: Back to Summit Details

Access and Trail info

The summit is located in Mt. Mitchell State Park off of the Blue Ridge Parkway (MM ~355.3 on the BRP). The state park and parkway can both be closed due to inclement weather. Short hike on paved path to the summit from the parking area. Lots of open area around the summit but expect to have company. I followed a trail into the woods at the last bend in the path before the summit. Fairly dense evergreen forest, probably too tight for a wire but I used an AlexLoop for this activation.
