Carver's Gap to Grassy Ridge
September 14-15, 2009
Near: Roan Mountain, TN
Route: Appalachian Trail to Grassy Ridge Trail
Type: Out and Back
Distance: 7 miles
Difficulty: Advanced, lots of elevation gain
Conditions: Partly sunny, nice
Impressions: This was a great hike for me and my girlfriend...the berries were still very much plentiful and the temps were still very nice...i would recommend this hike for anyone who wants to easily meander along without too much effort, but still have a great time...Round Bald and Jane Bald are the only two obstacles between Carvers Gap and Grassy Ridge and they are a fun time...we did hear and see wolves running around while we hiked and that brought a few moments of caution, but other than that, this was a great hike!
Directions to Trailhead:
From Roan Mountain, TN take highway 143 about 10 miles...Carvers Gap is signed and there is a parking with bathroom off to the right...
