Obamas Hike By Blue Ridge Parkway Milepost 375.6 near Asheville

We may have to sign President Obama up to the Highpointers Club. Last week he was reported doing perhaps stealth visit to the DC Highpoint. This week in honor of Earth Day, he went hiking at Mile Post 375.6 on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Asheville on the Mountains-to-Sea Trail headed towards Craven Gap. He is the first sitting President to visit the Parkway. Mount Mitchell is Milepost 355.4. The Mountains to Sea Trail begins on Clingmans Dome and ends at Jockey’s Ridge State Park on the Outer Banks. Parkway Chief Ranger Steve Stinnett gave him a Parkway Ball game. We may have to give Highpointing gear from the Merc. For those of you looking for dining tips, they ate at the Twelve Bones Smokehouse in Asheville.
