Hike to the top of Grandfather Mountain in the Blue Ridge Mountain Range, North Carolina.
Starting from the parking lot on 105 (~3900 ft) along Profile Trail to Shanty Spring and Calloway Gap, on to Grandfather trail to Calloway Peak (5964 ft) and Raven's Roost. Back the same way.
Total ~ 7.5 miles, ~ 2000 ft up and down again.
It was misty and cool, we had some cloudy views from the top:
