Ascent Trip ReportSee Full trip report for Mitchell.
Found sign placed at peak with elevation placed by State Park - but area at peak was surrounded by brush and cover. There are little views.
Began at 12:40 PM at parking lot EL 6080 and began ascending the old Mount Mitchell Summit Trail.Bushwhack leaves around 0.6 miles from the main trail when trail crests and then begins to descend as it skirts around the side of Hallback. Estimate 0.2 miles extra round trip up and back to main Trail. Thus, 0.7 up.
