Ascent Trip Report

Followed trail from Mount Mitchell parking lot northward to obvious summit (benchmark is easy to see just off the trail). Stopped to look around frequently. This part (the southern section) of the Black Mountain Crest Trail is easy to follow, though it does have a few steps (more of an issue on the return trip if you're tired).
