It is time to summit Mt Mitchell. Mt Mitchell is the highest peak in North Carolina AND East of the Mississippi River at 6,684 feet.
This is a strenuous hike, covering approximately 11.2 miles and including approximately 3600 feet in elevation gain. Only advanced hikers with recent D5 experience (or with significant D4 experience) should register. Hey, if you've not completed a recent AOC D4 or higher, please send the trip leaders information on your recent hiking experiences (trail name, distance, date, pace), this will enable us to ensure group safety. If I don't get an email from you, within a day of your signup, I will move you to the waitlist.
