Andrews Bald Trail
Beautiful Mountain hike on the North Carolina side of the Smokies
Enjoy a well maintained 3.6-mile there-and-back hike with sweeping views of the North Carolina Mountains. The trail begins along the Forney Ridge Trail, located at the far end of the Clingmans Dome Parking lot left of the paved path. The trail is moderately difficult, with 900 feet in elevation gain passing through a dense forest. Locust tree staircases accompany the well-maintained walking path, making it ideal for hikers. Make sure to stick to the trail and follow the well-placed clear signage located along the way.
