The reward of a stunning mountain view

Three Top MountainAmong the many great hiking trails in the High Country is one which goes to the summit of Three Top Mountain in Ashe County. The highest of the three peaks has an elevation of 4,865 feet, though a few other ridges in the mountain range go above 5,000. Part of an ever expanding state park, Three Top Mountain is popular with hikers and hunters. One recent hiker had her camera ready for the dramatic conclusion of her walk, for when she finally clears the top. Her efforts are rewarded with a view of just how gorgeous the High Country can be, even on a windy winter day. "Oh wow!"

Three Top Mountain is located west of West Jefferson, where there are more than 130 opportunities to Live the Dream in the High Country of North Carolina.
