Thanks to Dale Kolsan for adding this peak.
Andrews Bald, elevation 5860 feet, is not rough or rugged but round and smooth! Because there aren't many trees on the summit, views are spectacular. You can see Fontana Lake and all kinds of mountain ranges in North Carolina. A perfect place for a picnic! A moderate, rocky 2-mile trail (4 miles roundtrip) takes you to the views. Find the trail leading from the Clingmans Dome (6643') parking lot.
