Just outside of Bakersville, Roan Mountain isn’t just one mountain but contains five mountain peaks, and is roughly divided into two sections by Carver’s Gap. The first section — composed of Roan High Bluff and Roan High Knob — lies west of Carver’s Gap and is characterized by a thick coniferous forest. This part of Roan is shaped something like the body of a double-humped camel, with the “humps” being High Bluff and High Knob. Tollhouse Gap lies between the two peaks, and contains the Rhododendron Gardens, the largest of its kind in the world.

Enjoy breathtaking views all around you as you hike to three different balds. Starting from Carver's Gap, you'll enjoy an easy hike on gravel to your first bald, Round Bald. The hike to Round Bald is very heavily trafficked.

A hike to Laurel Fork Falls is a must do, particularly in early winter. The bare trees make way for a clear view to the Laurel Fork Creek of the Doe River for much of the hike and the melting snow creates a rushing flow of water, delighting both the eyes and the ears.
