Gregory Bald via Twentymile Professional Review and Guide
"Gregory Bald is among the finest destinations in the Smokies backcountry. For many hikers, it is the finest. Most people access the bald from the Tennessee side by taking either Gregory Ridge Trail or Gregory Bald Trail. The park has installed foot logs at the five crossings of Moore Springs Branch. As with most foot logs in the park, these foot logs could still wash away in flood conditions, and without them, you’ll have to wade."
--Kevin Adams, Hiking Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Falcon Guides).
I found this trail to be very difficult but uninspiring. The first couple of miles were the prettiest and then it was a long uninterupted climb up to the bald and a long uninterupted walk back down with heavy vegitation and little to see. The bald itself offered a nice sunset and basic camp sites. All in all, there are much prettier hikes to be found in the park.
