Some of the best views in the Smokies can be had from the Shuckstack Fire Tower. So, let's hike there via the Twentymile trail and the AT (returning the same way). Those willing to climb the creaky stairs can enjoy the outstanding views to be seen from the top of the tower (I'll just look at your pictures). Hike: 10.8 miles with total elevation gain of 2,700 ft. (1,400 in the last 2 miles), rated moderately difficult (because of that last tough climb).

Meet at Walmart Supercenter far right side of the parking lot, on US 411 South in Maryville at 7:30am {Drive: 80 miles RT @ 5ยข/mile=$4.00}, or at the Twentymile Ranger Station at 8:30am. The leader will meet the group at the Twentymile Ranger Station, not the carpool site.

Pre-registration is required. Masks are now required for all those participating in carpools, shuttles or key swaps, regardless of vaccination status. You may also choose to drive your own vehicle to the trailhead.

Pre-register with Ron Brandenburg

Leader: Pat Watts

Leader contact information is included under Additional Information in the email you receive after registration.
