Roan Mountain Highlands Hike Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"A Tri-Cities classic, this trip over open meadows and through the evergreen forests of Roan Mountain starts high and goes higher. Leave mile-high Carvers Gap on the Appalachian Trail, straddling the Tennessee–North Carolina state line. Quickly surmount two grassy balds broken by occasional rock outcrops. Leave the AT up Grassy Ridge, where more views await above 6,000 feet. End your hike at a view and a plaque memorializing a highlander native to our area."
