Mount Mitchell State Park Summit Trail Poster
The Mount Mitchell Summit Trail is a 0.4 mile out and back trail that leads visitors 6,684 feet above sea level, to the tallest peak in the Eastern United States. Beginning at the Visitors Center, it travels uphill along an ADA accessible path to the lookout tower atop the summit of Mount Mitchell. Several seating areas throughout this route amid spruce-fir forests and alpine meadows frame scenic mountain vistas in every direction. Although this peak is shrouded in clouds and fog eight out of ten days, on a clear day it’s possible to enjoy spectacular mountain views as far as 85 miles away. Positioned on milepost 355 of the Blue Ridge Parkway, this admission free park is a must see destination on any trip through Western North Carolina.
