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 5000+ feet.
