Difficult, 6 mi uphill hike (12 mi round trip) with 3000 ft of elevation gain
US 19W, Burnsville NC 28714
We meet at the Spivey Gap trailhead (1 hr drive from Kingsport) at 8:00 am to get an early start. The hike is southbound on the Appalachian Trail to Big Bald which is 6 miles. We will eat a light lunch at the top and then hike back down to the cars at Spivey Gap. Bring plenty of water, snacks and a lunch for the hike. Consider bringing clothing layers, because the elevation at Big Bald is 5,500 ft. We hope to be back at the cars around 2:30 pm. Call or text Jonathan at 417-389-6987 to let him know if you are planning on joining or if you have any questions.
