Difficult, 6 mi uphill hike (12 mi round trip) with 3000 ft of elevation gain

Spivey Gap
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.
