The starting view from Clingmans Dome was beautiful as well as the view from Andrews Bald. The first mile of Forney Ridge trail was neat, you walk through some rocky terrain. The remaing 3 miles of the trail was a little boring for an out and back trail. Next time we will make it a loop trail by taking the Springhouse branch trail from Forney Ridge to meet up with the Forney creek trail.
