joseyinnetUp from Carver Gap  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2016


A quick stroll to the summit knob. On the way up I met a thru hiker who was pissed that he had missed the top, and he kept going on about how there was no sign or trail. After that I kept a close eye to see where I needed to leave the trail, and wouldn't you know there is a VERY clear trail and sign for the shelter. I'm not really sure what the hiker was talking about

Lots of thru hikers happy that the next time they would be that high would be NH.

Hiked to all the Roans above 6,000 feet in one day. Started at Carver's Gap and hiked to Roan High Knob, then it was on to Roan High Bluff before backtracking across Carver's Gap and heading over to Grassy Ridge Bald.

Headed up from Carvers Gap. Met one through-hiker at the AT shelter, then headed over to the summit for a few minutes. Then back to the AT on onwards to Roan High Bluff.

Started up this thing in the early morning hours under heavy fog. Walking through the woods was pretty freaky with no noise whatsoever and not much light to see by.

An inch of snow fell on my tent overnight while I slept. The wind was howling. Kind of a daunting place to spend a cold, snowy night.

Not bad... little bit of ice on the trail. We didn't see anyone else on Roan High Knob though there was a fair number of people just north on the balds.

dwhikeRoan Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 9, 2006


A great early spring hike. Did it as part of a 12-mile "loop" along with Roan High Bluff and Grassy Ridge Bald. The trail was a bit tricky with a lot of ice on the trail. In wet weather much of the trail up from Carvers Gap doubles as a small stream, which when I went was frozen. There was also a small bit of snow in places near the summit from the 12"+ we had the week before. A nice hike, I love the northern feel of this mountain.

This is the third time I've been on the Roan's Knob. I suspect I will be back again... Cheers to cloudland!

Oct 2010: Hiked up again for the 2nd time this year. Beautiful windy, sunny fall day.
