Easy walk. Small children would be fine. Great after church stroll to help work out off a little lunch!

Good, but quite muddy in spots. Busier than I expected too.

Easy and peaceful trail. Nice way to return to the parking lot from the summit...

HikingGreat!Muddy

If you do this clockwise (starting on Buncombe Horse Trail) the trail up to the ridge is less difficult, but there was a water crossing that I needed "water shoes" for. I saw no sign of recent horse travel. Also clockwise there is plenty of water on the way up. However once you pass Commissary Ridge campsite and join the Mt. Mitchell trail there is no water until you descend the ridge after a 1/2 mile. That 10 mile ridge hop IS spectacular. Yes that trail is difficult (been up and down it before). I like down much better! :-) This is a difficult hike, best in 2-days. Many people just drive to Mt. Mitchell and do the "ridge hop" from there...ok for them, but I like the challenge. Trail is generally very well maintained. There is a 1/2 mile walk on the road between the two trail-heads, but that was no big deal.

Great hike. Definitely strenuous in parts. Missed the trail on way back and ended up in campground, so had to walk on road for a bit. Overall good hike

Easy walk up to a great view. Well maintained trail. Don’t go past the falls unless you are interested in rock scrambles.

Did this counterclockwise parking at the Colbert Ridge Trail Head. The Colbert Ridge Trail is TOUGH. Straight up and mostly washed-out or rock scrambles. However, the Crest Trail section from Deep Gap to Commissary Hill is incredible and offers plenty of great views (but limited water FYI). At Mount Mitchell, you have to take the Balsam Nature Loop (on the way up to the peak) to get to Mount Mitchell Trail, which brings you to Commissary Hill. Good campsite, lots of open space and access to water a short ways down Buncombe Horse Trail. Buncombe Horse Trail was a mud pit and mostly downhill in forest, but about a mile after leaving Commissary Hill, there’s a small opening to your right with a spectacular view, especially early in the AM. Maple Ridge Camp also has some grassy openings to take a break (keep walking past BHT sign for about 20ft and there’s big opening with a view). Tough loop, but definitely worth it for that middle ~10 mile portion.

Nice short trail but still a solid workout. If you go when leaves are still on the trees the view standing on the flat part of the rocks isn't that great due to trew cover. You'll will want to climb up on the rocks a little higher to get a vantage point above the tree cover. Parking is right on the side of the highway. Currently there is some road construction on highway 19W if coming from Tennessee.

Lots of rocks and roots but absolutely beautiful moss and ferns and boulders to play on. My kids loved pretending they were searching for fairies.

Blew the shofar and let out my own roar with the falls as Yom Teruah is this evening.

HikingGreat!MuddyRockyScramble

Beautiful trail, very easy to follow but certainly difficult both ways. Starting from the South Toe River Trail Head next to the Black Mountain Campground the white diamond blazed trail travels consistently up in elevation with few dips, 3 miles in you will hit a trail marker and a fork: the right fork brings you to the Fire Tower, the left fork follows the white diamond blazes and brings you to the Blue Ridge Parkway where you can head to your right and find the Green Knob Overlook. This trail is hard on your cardio going up and a total slip and slide going down, wear ankle support!

I found the trail to be well maintained. My next hike of this trai with be my 32th. I have met some of the most awesome people. It is a good workout and has good really good camp sites. Two good water sources.

Beautiful trail, very reminiscent of the PNW. It was a rainy day, not shocking due to the elevation and weather shifts. It’s not difficult, just mind the slippery rocks. Highly recommend for a gorgeous “warm up” hike.
