Accessed this trail from the Lookout Mtn trail. Not very long, but part of a 7 or 8 mile Montreat trail system that traverses a few peaks. 360 views at the top. Seven Sisters Peaks to the north is the best view. Want to say I saw Mt Mitchell towering over all of them in the very back. To the east is I-40 cutting through the valley, and Kitsuma Peak. Good view south of the lower crested Swannanoa Mtns. Sweet views, overall.
