Great views from the Bald. Clingman's Dome parking lot was an absolute disaster after the climb back up the Dome, I think if I ever do it again I will get there even earlier!
Luckily, I had beautiful weather on Andrews Bald.
Asked a passerby to take my picture at the final destination. Was told he'd never used a digital camera. Gotta love it!
I loved this hike. Saw the trailhead off Clingman's Dome trail. With all the people headed up to Clingman's Dome, I was shocked that my gf and I were the only ones hiking this trail! I think this was my favorite "smoky mountains" experience. Hiked with mebo1126.
Great short hike from Clingmans Dome trailhead. The view is well worth it!
It was a great way to get away from the crowds on Clingman's Dome and the views were as good as the Smokies have to offer. Also, the trail is in great condition since the Park Service was just completing a tremendous job of outstanding trail maintenance. Thanks NPS!
after feeling bad driving to the parking lot of Clingmans dome i decided to hike to Andrews Bald and back. nice little hike. only one on the trail and was able to get away from the crowds at CD. saw some snakes. Cloudy so i was only able to get some slight views through the clouds
My nephew and I hiked to Andrew's Bald on a beautiful spring day in 2000. The view was clear all the way to Fontana. Half of the times I have been to Clingman's Dome parking lot, the mountain is socked in so this was one of those special days.
for a fall hike.
Nice fall colors and no other hikers on the trail. Great!
Great hike on my first trip to the Smokies. We were in the clouds most of the trip with a few breaks in the weather, but not many views. Still a gorgeous mountain.
Kind of a misty day. Did this one after the Dome.
