Ascent Trip Report

Carver Gap double-out-and-back. Basically Carolina Mountain Club hike #137. I road walked from Carver Gap up to the first parking lot at Cloudland Mountain. From there I took the Roan Bluff Trail out and back to Roan High Bluff across several roads and past more parking lots. Took quick side trips to the Rhododendron Garden and to explore the old Cloudland Hotel ruins. From the Cloudland Hotel, I took the AT to Roan High Knob and explored the shelter and the old firetower area. From High Knob, returned to Carver Gap via the AT. The second leg of the day was the out-and-back to Grassy Ridge Bald bagging Round Bald and Jane Bald on the way.

It was a clear day and from Grassy Ridge Bald, I could see every other SB6K range: Blacks and Craggies immediately in the foreground with the Great Balsams and Plott Balsams in the distance. The Smokies we're poking out from around the other Roans to the southwest.
