At 6053 FT, this is the highest point along the actual Blue Ridge Parkway.
Mt. Mitchell located North of Asheville is a higher peak, but is located off of the Parkway in a NC State Park.
The sign is a popular spot for selfies. Even here though, we see the effects of the vandalism which seems to get worse each year. Numerous overlook signs are stolen, rockwork is damaged and litter is everywhere. A sad commentary on today's culture.
