  • 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!

    Located in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina near the border with Tennessee, Andrews Bald is a high elevation grassy meadow which can be reached by hiking 1.8 miles along the Forney Ridge Trail. Named for Andres Thompson, a cattle herder who used the area in the 1840’s, it has the distinction of being the highest bald in the Great Smoky Mountains.

    The trailhead begins near the end of the parking area by the paved trail to Clingman’s Dome, a very popular tourist destination. By contrast, Andrews Bald is much less traveled, with a 1200-foot change in elevation.
