It breaks off to the left from the Mount Mitchell trail after about 1.5 miles and rejoins the yellow blazed Mount Mitchell Trail after 1.3 miles. Campsites with established camp rings are available and a stream is nearby to obtain water. Be cautious of dead and falling hemlocks in the area, though.
