Probably didn’t plan (food mostly) as well as we should have for a 13+ mile out and back but once we started we were committed to reach Big Bald. Gave it 3 stars bc it’s 95% forest with only 1 vista before the summit. While it was a good physical challenge it got monotonous at times. Didn’t see much wildlife - one deer, a few birds and some butterflies. Big Bald was glorious so there was THAT! Took us 6 hrs including a 20 min rest at the top. Saw only a handful of people the entire trek.
