    The highest point on the eastern seaboard! Tons of different ways to scale it, but we enjoyed the Western Mountain trail (although tough with quite a few scramble bits!)

    Just before the top where parking is impossible, there is an area that could hold a few cars (don't think it's an official stop) and has stupendous views.

    Great place to watch the sun rise. Dress warmly. When the wind is blowing it is very cold.

    Sunrise here was breathtaking. However, it's freezing cold. Like ice. Layer up as much as possible. Think you have enough layers? Add five more.

    Get their for the sunrise! It takes 15 minutes by car from the visitors center so plan accordingly. You can hike it or drive all the way up

    Plan on getting here at least an hour before sunrise! In the summer it gets busy, and fast!

    Catch a sunset or sunrise. You can drive to the top and hike down a bit to catch the beautiful views of the park. Plenty of parking on top. Really a gem.

    Tallest mountain on the East Coast. Tons of tourists, but you can sneak away to snap a nice picture.

    Sunrise, sunset, always make sure you're camera is with you. Head up on a full moon night and walk the loop, it's quite an experience.

    The actual peak elevation of the summit is down the gravel road behind the gift shop. Not showy, just a bronze disk on a rock to the right as the gravel path becomes a trail.

    If it's a foggy day don't bother coming up. U won't be able to see 15 feet in front of u. Wait till it's sunny and clear.
