Camp Rockmont Mountain Top

Camp Rockmont is an American Camp Association accredited residential boys summer camp in Black Mountain, N.C. The camp was founded in 1956 by George Pickering on the campus of Black Mountain College, which had recently closed.  It was originally founded as a boys-only Christian camp, and carried an American Indian theme.

This hike at Camp Rockmont starts at Lake Eden and follows a series of camp roads and trails to the summit of a mountain that overlooks the camp and the surrounding valley. There are outstanding views from here – especially in the fall. From the summit – you then backtrack to the lake.
