Favorite mountain?

Jedd Ferris

Max Patch, N.C. Indisputable proof that bald is beautiful.

Amanda Powers

Jump Mountain, Va. I grew up going to camp at the base of it every summer. It feels like home.

Christa Albano
Spruce Knob, W.Va. Sweet views on the highest peak in The Mountain State.

Dave Stallard
High Knob, in Wise County, Va.  It tops out at over 4,200 feet and, on a clear day, you can see four other states from its peak.

Charles Leonard
I enjoy waking up to a view of Carter’s Mountain in Charlottesville, Va., every morning.

Graham Averill

Black Balsam, N.C. It has rock outcroppings, bald summit, evergreen saddle, views, cool trails, and blackberries in season.

Will Harlan
Mount Mitchell, N.C. It’s inspired me to climb higher—and dig deeper.
