Silers Bald via Clingmans Dome

Silers Bald via Clingmans Dome Professional Review and Guide

"Begin at the park’s highest trailhead, near Clingmans Dome, and follow the Appalachian Trail along a knife-edge ridge. Roller-coaster along the spine of the Smokies, presenting stellar views. Reach the fast disappearing field of Silers Bald, enjoying multiple vistas.

Clingmans Dome Road, the trail access and where this hike begins, is open from April through November. Spring and fall have the clearest skies for stupendous views. Summer is plenty cool, but can be stormy in the afternoons. If you want to camp, try to stay at Silers Bald during the week."
