This is an OK way to visit Gregory Bald without the hours of Cades Cove traffic. Parking is somewhat limited to about a dozen or so vehicles. No views along the way except horse manure and hoofed-up numerous mud seeps, but also no Cades Coves visitors to be seen that said, hey, lets go on a hike in our T-shirts and flipflops. The highlight was all the scenic bridged stream crossings in the first mile or two. Slope was steady and manageable with weighted backpack. This is a good 3,600 ft training climb to build up to the 4,000-5,000 footers elsewhere in the park as climbing prep. Although I am still not sure why this Bald is popular (except for azaleas bloom time). Often socked in with fog and minimal views due to high bushes around most of the perimeter. Bring a sit-upon or pad for eating or resting in the grass.
