The iconic road that used to be the main access to Mount Mitchell; now an iconic trail that does the same.

Most of the trail is in private bear hunting land. Be aware of hunters, trucks, and ATVs from October to January.

Runner Notes

This trail is the main trail used for the infamous Mt Mitchell Challenge.

Description

This historic path is a western NC classic. The trail is very rocky in most parts and very technical despite its width. During the winter, the trail can have a lot of ice on it, and during the summer, it can be wet and muddy in those same parts.
