“When I left Asheville the temperature reading in the car was 89 degrees. At Mount Mitchell? 68 degrees. Scattered clouds and a bit of a breeze made for a perfect day for my final Southern Sixer hike. I love this trail. Uphill, downhill, rock scrambling, and tons of beautiful views! If you’re looking for solitude, take an afternoon off mid-week. We hiked this on a Friday and only saw a handful of people on the trail. Best part, of course, was sharing the trail with our nephew visiting from Texas. He loved it! 🙂 ”
