Challenge yourself while living out of a backpack and summiting Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak East of the Mississippi River, on 9/22-9/24!  Keep in mind, this is our most physically challenging hike on the trip schedule.   Don’t let that stop you; a little teamwork goes a long way. We have plenty of other options if you are looking for something less challenging though. We will depart early Friday morning and will return late Sunday night.

CHALLENGE LEVEL = HIGH

This trip includes hiking with a heavy backpack over mountainous terrain with significant elevation gains and losses. However, anyone who is physically active can do this hike—it is an awesome challenge! All CORE trips include instruction on basic backpacking skills, but expect to be challenged physically on this trip.
