Hike Deep Gap Trail
// March 16th, 2009 // Asheville Perfect Weekend
If the Biltmore Estate is the must see attraction in Asheville, then Mount Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi River, is the must see outdoor destination. The drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway has some of the best views in the area. Once there, lace up those boots and get your blood pumping by tackling four peaks over 6,000 feet.
Directions from Asheville: Head north on the Blue Ridge Parkway to milepost 388 to the entrance of Mt. Mitchell State Park. The trail starts near the picnic area at the beginning of the parking area.
