Mount Mitchell State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Bring warm clothes with you to Mount Mitchell. The rarefied air up here calls to mind Canada more than Dixie. The flora and fauna follow suit.

Luckily, in 1915, then-North Carolina Governor Locke Craig recognized the special character of this mountaintop and made it North Carolina’s first state park. Now, with a tent-only campground and some superlative highland scenery, Mount Mitchell State Park is a Southern Appalachian highlight."
