DescriptionAn obvious route south of the BOL route with the split near its end. Most of the climbing is WI2 and the right fork is harder.
LocationPlease refer to the South Toe River, Mount Mitchell, and Big Ivy Trail Map (Pisgah National Forest)
From the end of 1157 (see Crescent and BOL routes) continue up the gravel road and drainage and eventually move left following the large drainage north of locust ridge.
I highly recommend getting GPS coordinates from Google Earth.
Descent: Once on top pick up the Black Mountain Crest Trail, head south, and descend the Colbert Ridge Trail to its trailhead on 1158. Leave a second car here or huff it back to the start.
