Beautiful hike. If you park at the Murphy Road lot, you have to cross over the road, head north on the winding stair trail, up the AT, and pass the sign for Snow Bird Gap, to come to a grassy clearing, to hike up to Silers' Bald. The views are well worth it. you can take the spur trail to the Silers' Bald Shelter, y
take a break, then continue from the shelter on the other side of the Silers' Bald Shelter trail to reach the actual Silers' Bald final approach. You'll see a granite market at the top.
