See It All from Mount Mitchell Scenic Overlook

This spot sits on the highest natural elevation on the Atlantic Seaboard — 266 feet above sea level. Even higher than any point in Maine!

From here, you can see Sandy Hook, Sandy Hook Bay, Raritan Bay and the New York skyline. Here’s how to get there.
