Andrews Bald

Located near Clingmans Dome in North Carolina, Andrews Bald is the highest elevation grassy meadow in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The area was named for Andres Thompson, a cattle herder, who, in the 1840’s, brought livestock up the mountain to graze on hillsides.

Though less than 4 miles out and back, the trail is rated as moderately difficult due to an elevation change of 1200-feet. This is especially evident upon return, as the hike is entirely uphill.

If you’re interested in adding an accent piece to an empty wall in your home or place of employment, you can find many prints available in my gallery – framed, canvas, art, metal, wood, poster, acrylic and tapestries.

Hope to see you soon ~ thanks for stopping by!
