Phenomenal views and a great workout!
This short but steep hike can be completed in the early evening and you can be back down to the parking lot in time to enjoy a spectacular sunset.. During blueberry season, you can snack on your way to the summit. About a fourth of the way up to the summit is a great paved area to stop and take a scenic break. From there if you continue the hike, the trail becomes steep and rough with small boulders along the trail. If you are planning to return for the sunset allow time to complete the hike while there is still light. If you are staying in Maggie Valley this is a great impromptu outing. Mystic Mountain Cabin, our vacation rental cabin, is a great place to stay while touring the area.
