The Black Mountains of Yancey County are home to 17 named peaks over 6,000 feet, including mighty Mount Mitchell at 6,684 feet, the tallest mountain in the East. They also host nearly 100-miles of trails (in Mount Mitchell State Park and Pisgah National Forest), offering hikers a smorgasbord of options, ranging from easy strolls along the South Toe River to an exceptionally challenging jaunt up Woody Ridge, gaining over 3,500 feet in just 2.6 miles. Join NC High Peaks Trail Association co-founder Jake Blood as we examine these trails that weave, climb, and explore the river drainages, ridges, and high peaks of the Black Mountains. The class includes 3-hours of classroom discussion and an optional Saturday hike.
