Amazing hike through tunnels of rhododendron. Looks like there has been some controlled burning recently so there was a bit of char left over, but the wooded walk was still very pretty. Near the end of the hike there are numerous short side trails that take you out to the rocky ledges and overlooks. Absolute stunning views. Well worth the hike. Can't wait to go again in autumn.

Seth, what part of the trail was that camping section located at? Looks like a great over view!

Definitely NOT worthy of an "easy" rating. 1640 foot climb in 2.7 miles, in at times very rocky and slippery terrain. Trail at times seemed to almost go vertical. Scenery was nice, but this trail definitely should be rated as "moderate" or "difficult". The waterfall was nice and made the effort worth it, but I'm an in shape 50 year old and my wife and I have made other hikes including the Wiilliams Pulpit hike, and this one was insane.

Not knowing what a bald was, we set out on a hike in the mountains on the N. Carolina/Tennessee border. While the hike itself was OK, we were pretty disappointed to learn a bald was basically a prairie. We're from the Midwest so we're pretty conditioned to seeing prairies.

Lots of fun! Especially if you go on to Turtleback Falls and slide off the rock!
