Beautiful trail. Loved the views. Much easier part of the hike than mt Mitchell trail or old Mitchell . Camped at the primitive campground off this trail and it was perfect.

I hiked from the observation tower to Big Tom. You pass Mount Craig on the way to Tom. Lots of elevation change but it’s absolutely beautiful. Great views and lots of Moss all over the ground and trees. When I got to Tom I ran a woman who works at craggy gardens and she told me I was lucky to catch the view. 9 times out of 10 the entire mountain is covered in clouds. I would highly recommend this hike to anyone I saw at least five kids under ten.

I made a loop of this trail by hiking down Old Mitchell Trail to the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, then connecting at the bottom of the trail with Commissary Trail and the swinging back up on the Mount Mitchell trail to the summit. I found it to be challenging but rewarding. The footing was rugged for much of the way, with many tree roots and rocks. There were a number of spectacular views along Commissary Trail, and a spot that was perfect for taking a break and gazing out over the mountains. I had that spot to myself on a Sunday afternoon on a perfect, beautiful day. The uphill was physically demanding for me, but I’m also from a fairly flat state, so it’s tough to train for trails like this. i wholeheartedly recommend this trail, but it’s not for sissies.
