I first came across the Black Mountain Crest Trail a few years back with a simple Google search- “toughest hikes in America.” Seems like an odd Google search, but tough trails are where my bucket list starts. Everything I read about the Black Mountain Crest Trail in North Carolina deemed it one of the most rugged, difficult trails in the Eastern US. At only 12 miles long, its short length shouldn’t be overlooked as it packs in plenty of elevation gain, technical hiking, and difficulty into those few miles. The ridgeline traverse covers five of the ten highest peaks East of the Mississippi River, eight different six-thousand foot peaks, and a finish on Mt. Mitchell, the highest mountain in the eastern US.
The Sheltowee trail runs 323 miles from northern boundary of the Daniel Boone National Forest in Rowan County, Kentucky to the southern boundary of Big South Fork NRRA in Scott County, Tennessee. The STA, is a 501(c)3 non-profit association with the purpose of achieving the formation of a highly functional cross-state recreation trail. This includes trail maintenance, building, and markings.
