    Mt. Mitchell NC site selection

    I was considering a weekend trip to Mt Mitchell and was wondering if anyone could recommend a specific site number that was best for hammocks. There are only a handful of camping sites and I have never walked them to see. Have any of you been there?

    You may have to hike out one of the trails as I think the campsites require tents on a tent pad area

    The sites are located just off the parking lot. From there you hike to your site number with the farthest one being a short hike. I have been there on my motorcycle however each time never looked at the sites to see what is the best location. You have to reserve the site in advance so I guess if no one knows Ill have to check it out again in person next time.

    My son has done this hike and he parked here. He keeps asking me when I am going to do it. Maybe this will help.

    Straight out of Clayton.

    Most physical hike: Grandfather Mountain, NC. Aug 13.

    I don't need to make my pack lighter. I need to make my a_ _ lighter.
