Crosses the summit, which is exactly where you want to be when you visit Max Patch Mountain. Due to its central location, you can see just about everything from up here, from the Smokies, to Mount Mitchell, and halfway across Tennessee - which may be why this mountain is sometimes called "The Crown Jewel of the Appalachian Trail" (which crosses the mountain as well). Bring the kids, a kite, a picnic, a blanket, and spend some time up here! Follow the signs to follow the trail.
