Re: North Siouxon Creek, Black Hole Falls, Mt. Mitchell 7/11/15

Thanks for the replies! I was hoping there would be a spot near the top to camp so I don't have to do a 15-ish mile day. I *might* be able to get up there to camp near Black Hole Falls after work on a Friday and make it a two-nighter, but I was hoping some of those trees I see up top on satellite wo...

Re: North Siouxon Creek, Black Hole Falls, Mt. Mitchell 7/11/15

A couple of years ago, I did a long day hike that way to Mt Mitchell. There’s no bridge on the upper crossing with the sketchy rigging. It was late summer & low water. Walking across was no problem. Didn’t get my feet wet. Could have higher water ...

Best camping spot, I think, is at the junction with the spur to Black Hole Falls.

Re: North Siouxon Creek, Black Hole Falls, Mt. Mitchell 7/11/15

Reviving a very old thread...

Did this work ever get done? Anyone have more recent beta on the condition of this trail? I'm interested in doing an overnight to Mt Mitchell via N Siouxon and wondering how that trail is and how close to the top I could camp. Anyone?

North Siouxon Trail & Black Hole Falls

We hiked as a family of 5 with our dog (kids ages 9,12,15). A beautiful hike with fun river crossings, ... were sure to let me know what they thought! Roller coaster style. Probably at least 20 creek crossings, so plenty of water for pups! Very few people on trail...the hardest part ...

Re: Siouxon Peak Loop

Dangerous spots like that slide seem to be so subjective..... I did it last year, and wasn't bothered by it much. However, if there were kids along, I am not sure I would do it without a safety rope. On the other hand, the rock chute on the #211 trail up from Coldwater Lake up to Snow Lake, seems to...

Re: Siouxon Peak Loop

... here would be very serious. I would probably advise against doing this loop in order to avoid this slide crossing. It is just not worth it. Siouxon Peak can be reached via either the Wildcat trail or the Huffman Ridge Trail as discussed in previous posts above.

We did a family backpack (4 of us) a couple of years ago to Siouxon Creek. My adult sons love a fire & my older ds built a very nice, mesmerizing fire within a big ...
