Mount Mitchell and the Black Mountains of North Carolina

What's new:

This version adds the road defining the western boundary of the state park. It also identifies abandoned trails and roads occasionally used by hikers to connect Colbert Ridge and Woody Ridge Trails. The Percy's Peak label has been fixed. The Horse Rock label has been removed until exact location can be determined.


This free, community-created map covers the Black Mountains of North Carolina, from the Blue Ridge Parkway in the south, to Bowlens Creek in the north. It includes Mount Mitchell State Park, part of the Pisgah National Forest's Appalachian Ranger District, the Black Mountain Crest Trail, part of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, the Buncombe Horse Trail, and many other hiking trails in the area. Uniquely, this map features some of the best terrain, trail, and road data available for the Black Mountains, derived from recent LiDAR surveys. This is a community project, and if you're using this map then you're part of the Black Mountains community.

This map will have errors too, even though it has been made with the best data available at the time. Data collection is difficult and imprecise, and maps represent a changing landscape where water sources, trails, and other details may not be the same today as they were yesterday. Even with the best data, backcountry navigation can be extremely challenging. This map’s contributors are in no way responsible for personal injury, damage to property, violation of the law, vacation fails, or relationships ruined in connection with use of this map. Seriously, this map’s contributors shall not be held liable for improper or incorrect use of this map and/or its data, and no warranty is expressed or implied as to accuracy, reliability, or completeness.
