Hooper Bald

Hooper Bald is located just off of the Cherohala Skyway,

a few miles past the Tennessee and North Carolina state line in NC.

Once the site of a hunting preserve in 1908, where Russian Boar and other

exotic species were imported into the area by George Moore.

A short walk from the parking area takes you to the bald

where you can see Huckleberry Knob and the surrounding mountains.
