Preetham + Medha’s Mountain Adventure Engagement Session Max Patch, NC
Max Patch Mountain in NC, simply known as Max Patch, is hands down one of the most beautiful summits in the East. When Preetham + Medha wanted stunning views and were craving adventure for their engagement session I knew Max Patch would be the place for them. I gave them a list of my personal favorite adventure engagement session locations, they loved them all and ended up wanting me to decide for them. I loved every moment with these two.. I shoot their photos, we laughed and talked for hours. They taught me about their homes and families in India. Then we ended the night with THE BEST INDIAN FOOD in Asheville. Doesn’t get much better than that!
About Max Patch, NC
“Hike a section of the famous Appalachian National Scenic Trail (or A.T.) on top of Max Patch Mountain near Hot Springs. This 4,600-ft. bald mountain was cleared and used as pasture in the 1800s. Today, it’s a 350-acre tract of open land on a high knob with 360-degree views. It’s one of the most spectacular settings you’ll experience in the Blue Ridge.
On a clear day, see Mt. Mitchell to the east and the Great Smoky Mountains to the south. What a picnic spot! And great for star gazing, camping and wildflowers. The summit is a short hike from the parking area deep in Pisgah National Forest. You may be tempted to follow the closed trail that leads from the parking lot straight to the summit, but please resist since it’s an ecological restoration area. Follow one of the two easier blue blaze trails to the Appalachian Trail and summit. Hike up one trail, cross the summit and back down the other for a total of 1.7 miles.” –Romantic Asheville
