Hiking
We have not hiked this mountain but others have come here just to hike Mt. Mitchell. It is supposed to be the highest elevation east of the Mississippi.

Linville Falls is the most popular waterfall in the Blue Ridge Mountains because of its accessibility to the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is a spectacular three-tiered waterfall plunging into Linville Gorge, the “Grand Canyon of the Southern Appalachians.” The Falls Trail distance is 1.6 miles round trip and easy. The Gorge Trail distance is 1.4 miles round trip and strenuous. The Plunge Basin Trail is 1 mile round trip and moderate. Pets are welcome but must be on a leash. The Visitor's Center is at Mile Marker 316. Find information on the two hiking trails and map at https://www.nps.gov/blri/planyourvisit/linville-falls-trails.htm.

Upper Creek Falls is a beautiful setting with multiple cascades and a swimming hole complete with a rope swing for diving! It's located in the North Carolina mountains in Pisgah National Forest along NC Highway 181 (near the small community of Jonas Ridge, about 13.5 miles north of Morganton) and about 5.5 miles south of the Blue Ridge Parkway. At the parking area, there are two options to start your hike on the loop trail. Take the Upper Falls trail first to a series of cascades dropping about 80 ft. along the rocky slope. The hike is 4/10-mile one-way with a downhill section near the water. After you descend a small staircase to the water's edge, you have three choices: turn left to reach the swimming hole; turn right for a view from the top of the main waterfall; or cross the creek to continue on the loop trail and get a better look at the main waterfall.

This is one of if not the oldest working gristmill. You need to call and make sure when it will be running. If you love old places it is a must see. You can buy ground corn flour and grits. Can be hard to find and it is a hike but well worth the time.
