Major Peaks

From the lowest point in the park, the mouth of Abrams Creek, at an elevation of 840 feet, to the 6,643-foot summit of Clingmans Dome, there's more than a 5,800-foot change in elevation. More significantly, there are 16 peaks cresting above 6,000 feet, including six peaks that are among the highest east of the Rockies: Clingmans Dome, 6,643 feet; Mount Guyot, 6,621 feet; Mount LeConte, 6,593 feet; Cliff Top, 6,555 feet; Mount Buckley, 6,500 feet; and Mount Love, 6,446 feet. In addition, there are 58 places in the park with elevations of more than 1 mile (5,280 feet). Many of these locations lie on or along the Appalachian Trail (see Appalachian Trail, page 297).
