White Rocks Cliffs, Blackstack Cliffs, and Big Firescald Knob Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This hike offers spectacular views from three rocky ridges. The highest point east of the Mississippi, Mount Mitchell (elevation 6,684'), and the rest of the Black Mountains can be seen from this hike. There is little change in elevation on the hike because the drive to the trailhead brings you to the top of the ridge.

If you’re hiking in late summer, blueberries abound along the ridge near Big Firescald Knob. Most of the rocks that compose these ridges are white quartzite, formed more than 500 million years ago. Keep in mind that exposed areas like these are very dangerous in inclement weather."
