Cold Mountain Trail
At A Glance
1.4 mi one-way
Difficulty Rating: 1.4 (Difficult)
Steepness: Climbs Moderately
Tread Condition: Moderately Rough
Blaze Color: None
Trail Number: 141
This trail follows a ridge line south of Cold Mountain for its first half, and then traverses to the west of the mountain before climbing to another ridge and ascending the mountain’s western flank. The top of Cold Mountain has plenty of trees on it, so the view is broken, especially in the summer months when the trees are foliated. But what can be seen is well worth the hike. A more open viewpoint, an exposed rock face on the summit’s south side, is accessible via a very short spur trail on the right side of this trail, about 20 yards short of the summit.
