Excellent hike with lots of shelters on the way with opportunities to replenish water. There's a short side trail towards Tellico Gap up to Rocky Top that provides good views if isn't too hazy. Very short and worth the detour. Would highly recommend this hike, especially trying to catch sunrise at Wayah.

Beautiful drive up to wayah. If you plan to hike, you'll have to choose some of the side Trails once you get there. You drive straight up to the bald.

Was super foggy so the views were pretty blocked, but overall an enjoyable hike. Went up to the wesser bald fire tower as well, felt so high up but couldn't see more than 10 feet off the tower.
