Max Patch, N.C. Indisputable proof that bald is beautiful.
Jump Mountain, Va. I grew up going to camp at the base of it every summer. It feels like home.
Spruce Knob, W.Va. Sweet views on the highest peak in The Mountain State.
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.
I enjoy waking up to a view of Carter’s Mountain in Charlottesville, Va., every morning.
Black Balsam, N.C. It has rock outcroppings, bald summit, evergreen saddle, views, cool trails, and blackberries in season.
Mount Mitchell, N.C. It’s inspired me to climb higher—and dig deeper.
