Love this trail! Definitely feels like more than 2.6 miles some days, but it's always beautifully taken care of, people are always friendly and the views are just out of this world!

Don't stop at Jane Bald! Press on and keep going to the top of Grassy Ridge Bald. It is absolutely gorgeous up there. The entire hike was filled with nonstop views and the immanent aroma of the spruce-fir forest. Nothing beats this place.

The views from Jane Bald are spectacular. It is the middle of the three Roan Mountain balds. This is one of my favorite hikes, and one that I keep coming back to!
