Grassy Ridge

You will never stub your toe standing still. The faster you go, the more chance there is of stubbing your toe, but the more chance you have of getting somewhere.
--Charles Kettering (1876-1958) American inventor

From Carver's Gap on Roan Mountain, the AT heads north over Round Bald and Jane Bald, before the trail splits, with the AT continuing on and a well-marked side trail heading up to Grassy Ridge. With an elevation of 6,189 feet, Grassy Ridge Bald is one of the highest balds in the Appalachian Mountains. The total distance of the hike from Carver's Gap is 5.1 (roundtrip). Photos of this beautiful hike here.
