Tater Knob or Gilbert's rock, a nice view of Walnut cove. Blueberries are plentifull in June.
One of the most unique places in the Dupont State Forest.
Mount Mitchell is the highest peak east of the Mississippi! We went into that part of the forest looking for Indian pipe but no luck. Instead we found some healthy Wild Bergamot.
Investors Gap is a awesome hike. You can reach it off Blue Ridge Parkway near Black Balsam.
