Blue Ridge Pinnacle
Photo By Mark Vandyke

  • Title: Blue Ridge Pinnacle
  • State/Province/Region: North Carolina
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Asheville, North Carolina
  • Nearest Town: Black Mountain
  • Brief Directions: Blue Ridge Parkway near Mount Mitchell
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: This particular vantage is one of my favorites; never crowded and never easy to reach, the pinnacle trail is less than one mile in length but climbs a considerable vertical gainer (something like five-hundred feet or so in less than a mile) without any meandering or mercy. It is said in the little bit that I've been able to find online about this trail that the pinnacle is either the second or the fourt highest peak in the Blue Ridge front and definitely the highest peak in McDowell County. The view looks away from Yancey County and the Black Mountains to the north and out towards McDowell County and the Great Craggy Mountains (would be to the right of this frame) to the south. The solitude and grand view of this pinnacle makes this one of, if not the favorite, of the many day-hikes that I've explored in this area.

    I like this image. Nice composition that leades you up the river. Nice color but not to oversaturated. Crisp and clear. Nice job.
