Hooper Bald is located south of Huckleberry Knob across the Cherohala Skyway and is also reached by a short, easy hike. Although not as scenic from the summit — few mountains are — it is still worth the quick trip while you are touring the many sights of the national scenic byway. The summit features an immense, rectangular grassy bald from west to east, culminating in views north of Huckleberry Knob and west of Haw Knob. This is a great spot for camping and stargazing if you are looking for a quick, overnight trip.
