HikingGreat!

Access to this trail is on the opposite side of the Roan Mountain community from the turn leading to Roan Mountain State Park and the heavily-trafficked Carver's Gap area. Little Hump & Hump Mountain are balds that differ from the balds at Carver's Gap in a couple respects: 1.) one has to earn it via a 5+-mile moderate ascent (versus the immediate gratification at Carver's Gap) and 2.) there are far fewer people. One of the best experiences of this hike is the transition of conditions. By the time one nears the summit, the temperature has noticeably dropped and the wind has intensified. The balds are relatively featureless but offer some terrific 360 panoramic views. Altogether, a very deserving day hike!

HikingGreat!

Beautiful stroll through the woods along the river banks. Water fall at the end is big and a cool spot for some pics on the big rock. I was able to make it with out getting my feet wet with a few careful creek crossings

HikingGreat!

Great little trail, especially in mid winter. Do NOT turn left on to Pete Greever Rd. Veer slightly to the right and keep going another mile+ until you get to the Forest Gate. You can do this trail without getting your feet wet unless rain has been recent and heavy. Do take a walking stick or similar. Do take a camera.

We got to hike this trail on a 65 degree bluebird of a day! Amazing! The views one the last mile of the hike are breathtaking. We stopped at the Smokey Mountain Bakers for wood fired pizza after the hike, delicious!

Awesome hike with lots of creek crossings and beautiful falls. Not very strenuous but you have to take your time with all the rocks. Definitely a worthwhile destination.

Beautiful trail! 11 miles total to top and back. Panoramic views! Trail well maintained and not difficult for experienced hikers.

Parking was limited at the trailhead on 19E. There is some additional parking across the highway. The trail was well marked, which is good because you could have gone off trail easily. BE CAREFUL on this trail. We did this yesterday. It’s very rocky, muddy, mossy, and “rooty.” The ground was covered in colorful, wet leaves, which made some parts dangerously slick. It took us the same time to get down the trail as up, because we had to be cautious on the rocks. Wear good footwear! The views were beautiful! Within the first mile or so, there are three campsites, some larger than the others. The largest campsite is right at the border of NC & TN. This site could easily hold 6 tents. It has three fire pits.

Amazing trail. Very pretty. Views from summit were outstanding. 5.9 miles from 19E to summit. Almost all of that was uphill. Many steep and challenging stretches. Started at 10:20 AM. Got back to car at about 6:20 PM. Leisurely picnic on summit. Highly recommend this hike.

I loved this hike; what a blast! Even though there wasn't much elevation gain, it still took way longer to hike than expected. You have to pick your way around rocks pretty much the whole trail and we counted 16 creek crossings, for 32 total. It's worth it, just give yourself plenty of time. The waterfall is beautiful. I highly recommend. I only wish I'd been prepared for drive up to the trail on the dirt road. It was especially steep and treacherous for my small, made-for-city-life rear wheel drive car.

HikingGreat!

Love this falls. Cool weather is finally here. I always kick off my hiking season here. I live about an hour away. Its a nice flat hike with an awesome reward. Love sitting at the upper falls. So peaceful. Didn't see a sole the whole 4 hours I was there. Happy hikin!!! Your boots are only waterproof to the tops....

HikingGreat!

Beautiful views at the top on the balds. Parking limited right next to the trailhead but seems like there is more across the highway. Trail wasn't too busy on a Friday, maybe passed 10 other people but most of the time I was hiking by myself. Trail has a fair amount of elevation change but is graded perfectly so I never found myself out of breath. The trail is mostly in the woods until you get to Doll Flats and really doesn't open up until the balds at the end, the hike in the woods was nice but a partial hike wouldn't be worth it in my opinion. Views at the top were similar to what you could get at the access near Carvers Gap so if you don't have the time to finish this hike maybe go there instead.

BackpackingGreat!MuddyRockyScramble

My husband and I loved this trail. We got on the trail early on a Saturday morning with our two dogs. The trail starts as a forest setting and you are constantly climbing. Once you arrive at the first campground the trail changes completely. There are beautiful meadows, rock scrambles and the view at the top is panoramic and stunning. Highly recommend if you are in the area. 11.2 miles on my AllTrails recording. We passed about 40 people the entire day. A lot of nice hikers and campers. Very well maintained trail. A perfect hiking day!

I was really intrigued why there were so many ratings and it was still 5 stars — but after doing it I can honestly say it meets those expectations. It was absolutely beautiful from start to finish. I would rate it definitely moderate to hard — the incline is rough to get through at points. But overall I never felt lost or didn’t know where I was going, and the views are Breathtaking. Do not miss this hike. I drove 6 hours to try this one out, and not disappointed! I took my German Shepherd with me, and he did perfect, no issues with dogs .

HikingGreat!

Nice trail for an overnight. Campsite and water at the state line. Last water to peak is about 3.5 miles in. You’ll want to fill up if planning to stay on the peak. I agree with the moderate rating. Will wear you out but not as tough as if coming from Carver’s gap
