Gorgeous views the entire way. Super easy trail to follow, right before Jane Bald it is a bit of a climb. Lots of people on this trail though.

Absolutely incredible trail. Stunning views, nice easy hike, and well marked paths. Incredible place to watch the sun rise and set. The wind along the bald can get pretty nasty, especially if a bit cold out, and watch out for the rain. The trails will turn into small streams. Plenty of parking at the trail-head, and one of the cleanest outhouses I've ever seen.

Perfect hike for any level hiker. The elevation can be tough at first. But your body adjust. Epic views in all directions. When the rhododendrons blooms it’s one of top spots on East Coast. Photographers travel from around the world for this event.

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!
