Just curious, after our recent scouting trip, we drove up to Sassafras Mtn. It was beautiful. But being more used to the alpine look and feel, how far from Greenville does one have to drive to get to pine forests? Asheville? I saw that their were more peaks in the Asheville area that were above 5,000 feet.

I'm not sure what you are looking for - higher elevation forests in the SE aren't typically pine forests. You car find a mixed Fraser fir / red spruce forest at some higher elevations. The closest location for that would probably be near the Devil's Courthouse overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway. That area is known as the Great Balsam Mountains and includes Cold Mountain.

Mt Mitchell is just north of Asheville on the Blue Ridge Parkway and is the tallest peak east of the Mississippi.

Mt Pisgah, Graveyard fields, Mt Mitchell. If you are willing to stretch it out a bit Roan Mountain is beautiful especially where the App. trail crosses.
