Hike To This Unique Mountaintop Cave In North Carolina For An Adventure Like No Other

At approximately 2,200 feet tall, North Carolina’s Hibriten Mountain isn’t the tallest peak in the state, but its location at the western end of the Brushy Mountains and near the city of Lenoir, makes it a prominent feature on the landscape. Known for the tower on top as well as the lights that turn on and sparkle through the holiday season, Hibriten Mountain is not only part of the landscape, but also part of the community.
