Updated photos from my most recent visit to this beautiful backcountry campsite. I took a different route hiking back this time that made it a loop and I would highly recommend it.

This is a classic bald where you get to the top and there are no trees around so you can see for miles. This also makes for great open space to set up a tent. There are several spots along the way up to the bald that you could camp but be aware that there is really no water so fill up before you…

Siler Bald is located in North Carolina
Siler Bald is north of Franklin, North Carolina off Wayah Road. You can find a gravel parking lot just after the AT trail crossing (parking lot located on the left). Some lower-to-the-ground vehicles may not clear the steep hill into the lot, so park on the roadside. The trailhead is to the left of the parking lot and leads up to the white blazes on the AT. Parking is free, and there are picnic tables just beyond the parking lot. Unfortunately, no bathroom facilities.
