The two main mountain chains and several lesser ranges encompassed by the forest have 20 6,000-foot peaks, including 6,684-foot Mount Mitchell, highest summit east of the Mississippi River. Part of the Appalachian Trail winds along the northwest boundary of the forest. Hwy 276, which runs for 37 miles between Brevard and Waynesville, is part of the Forest Heritage National Scenic Byway and affords access to several points of interest.
