Viking Mountains’ name originated from the former 1960s ski resort that used to sit slightly below the summit. It’s rumored that during the peak of the ski resort, Elvis Presley was helicoptered onto the mountain. The actual name is Camp Creek Bald which sits within the Bald Mountains between the Tennessee and North Carolina border. However, locals refer to it as Viking Mountain. You can find the Appalachian Trail running just below the summit. Towering at 4,844 feet tall, Viking Mountain is just barely the second-highest peak in Greene County.
