Andrew's Bald is a short (4 mi. round trip) hike and you'll see a gorgeous 300 degree view, take lots of pictures at your leisure, and still make it back safely before sunset. For some, this is a revisit of those pretty views while getting a moderate workout to get there! This is a remarkable place with lot's of blackberries and other foliage and wildlife. As always, there is a chance of rain in the afternoon, so take a rain cover. They can be purchased at Food City for about 3 bucks! There is some hill climbing on the way back, so wear decent footwear. We'll meet near the front door of the Sugarlands Visitor Center and carpool from their. Afterwards, those who have time, will gather at the Ol' Smoky Brewery For Dinner in Gatlinburg. DONATIONS ARE APPRECIATED
We'll begin our journey for a moderate 2+ mile downhill hike to the the very beautiful clearing called the "Bald". While there, we'll bask in the profound views of the great Fontana Lake area of North Carolina. For more details about this hike, check out the following link:
Please let me know if you have extra room in your vehicle for fellow hikers to ride with you from Sugarlands to Clingman's Dome's parking lot and back.
I encourage everyone to soak up the sun and fun with a nice bunch of folks in God's magnificent playground called; The Great Smoky Mountains This Sunday!
