McRae Peak

The hike to and from McRae Peak is probably one of the best hikes in High Country in North Carolina. It is about one hour from the Grandfather Mountain, you have to clime up about five different wooden stairs and some of them are fairly scary. If you afraid of heights then it is probably not a hike for you. The McRae Peak is actually the stone on the right side of this photo. About 3-4 feet to the right is another wooden ladder, about 20 feet high and it allows you to clime up the peak.

It was extremely windy that day and we really didn’t spend much time on top of the rock, but on a nice day you have very nice 360 view around the high country. It is very popular place to bring your lunch snack and enjoy the view while munching on it.
