SOUTH BEYOND 6000 in the CRAGGY MOUNTAINS
One peak over 6000 feet is located in the Craggy Mountains. This is Craggy Dome (6080 feet). Craggy Dome is located alongside and south of the Blue Ridge Parkway, between two and three miles north of the Craggy Garden Visitor Center. Hikers may access Craggy Dome from the Greybeard Overlook at mile 363.4, where the Mountains-to-Sea Trail crosses the Blue Ridge Parkway. From the south side of the Parkway, just before the Overlook, a faint trail cuts back to the Southwest leading up the ridge to the summit. Since the ascent takes only about 20 minutes, hikers must use one of the approved routes, which are at least 5 miles in length, to qualify for the South Beyond 6000 program.
