Ascent Trip Report

Jane Bald is a subpeak of Grassy Ridge Bald, 1.3 miles from Carvers Gap via the AT northbound. Just beyond the summit, there's a white mailbox with flyers about the Baa-tany Goat Project, which brings goats to the Roans each summer, where they help preserve the balds by grazing on invasive blackberries and other plants.
