Views from Vandeventer Professional Review and Guide

"This hike travels the spine of Iron Mountain, using the Appalachian Trail to reach a trail shelter and a fi ne view. Start near Watauga Dam and work uphill, entering Laurel Branch Wilderness, climbing by switchbacks to the ridge crest. Occasional outcrops provide warm-up views. Th e richly forested mountain eventually takes you to Vandeventer trail shelter, directly behind which is a rock crag presenting panoramas of Watauga Lake and beyond."
