Come learn about Mount Mitchell's past, present and future while taking a short hike with park staff. This moderate, 3/4-mile nature trail starts at its junction with the Mount Mitchell Trail and ends at the tower summit parking lot. A tiny stream located along this trail-the highest spring in eastern America-was a major water source for park personnel during the developmental stages of Mount Mitchell State Park.

Miles: .75 miles

Level: moderate

Estimated Time: 1 hour

Parking Info: Mount Mitchell State Park, 2388 State Highway 128, Burnsville, NC 28714

Please wear appropriate clothing as the high altitude makes the climate of Mount Mitchell chilly, even in the summer.
