Huckleberry Bald is an in and out hike just off the Cherohala Skyway.  This short trail leads up a gradual slope through a thicket of dwarfed trees and shrubs to the bald above.  The bald (mountain top) rests in a sea of high grass overlooking the surrounding mountains, foliage and deep valleys.  It is a magnificent viewing area at 5,000+ feet.
INDIAN BOUNDARY LAKE (alternate for Falls Branch Falls)
Distance:   3.6 mile loop

Indian Boundary is a 100 acre lake just off the Cherohala Skyway.  The path follows the shoreline of the lake and the combination of this hike and the magnificent vistas from Huckleberry Bald both on the Cherohala Skyway will make a wonderful day on the trails. 

Hiking boots and hiking sticks are recommended. Driving directions will be provided the morning of the hike.
Bring water and a trail lunch. Carpooling is recommended, passengers are asked to contribute $6 to the driver to help cover gas, etc.,
