ok, so the pay off is the fire tower. please k ow the last .4 miles will kick your tail. Does not matter how much you hike. This section makes Blood Mountain look like a foothill. The fire tower is incredible with a view almost as good as Pickens Nose.

Great out and back, especially if you're looking for a quick, bang for your buck hike. Great views along the way. Spectacular view up top. Be warned, though: last .3 to the top is STRAIGHT UP and the most strenuous part of hike. But it's totally worth it.

It was a great day hike trail. Not mark very great, but me and some friends managed. One thing that did catch us off guard is that to get to the trail head, there is a ~5 mile long gravel road stretch that essentially takes you halfway up the mountain.

The hike can be a difficult one, however the view from the top is absolutely breath taking and makes it well worth it. I'm not sure if this is the same trail we took, we ended up on the AT at the Albert Mountain fire tower.
