We recently hikes the last portion to the top of the first ridge and really enjoyed it. The view was stunning and it was worth the moderate short hike. If you are in the area, I would recommend Roan Mountain!

We love riding our motorcycle on trips like this. We didn't get to go to the very top because it was on a gravel road (not good for a motorcycle) but we did go as high as we could. Beautiful views and the flowers were...More
