The East Coast may not boast as many high-elevation mountains as the western portion of the state, but you’d be mistaken to think these lower ranges weren’t worth exploring. The tallest mountains on the East Coast measure well over a mile high. In fact, you can experience the two tallest peaks east of the Mississippi River when you visit Mount Mitchell State Park in North Carolina. This beautiful park promises to be a true bucket-list destination.
Mount Mitchell State Park can be found off the Blue Ridge Parkway at mile marker #355 in Yancey County. For more information, you can visit the official website here. Have you experienced this state park before? We’d love to hear all about it!
