Roan Mountain in Tennessee is a wonderful park. If you park at Carver’s Gap on the NC/Tenn border, you can hike North on the Appalachian Trail along the state border for some amazing views. You can hike to Round Bald, then Jane Bald (slightly harder), then Grassy Ridge (harder yet) for a great time with amazing views of mountains in both states. Here is a view into the NC side:
Gramps Fin Buddy #37) came along with us today and he decided to hide out in the enchanted forest on the way up to the first bald (Round Bald). We hope some kids scrambling around on the rocks find him and take him home.
