Nantahala National Forest Yellow Mountain Fire Lookout Tower Poster
The Yellow Mountain Fire Tower sits atop the tallest peak in the Cowee Mountains at 5,127 feet and features one of the most isolated lookout towers in the state of North Carolina. Its craggy summit provides panoramic views of Panthertown Valley, Whiteside Mountain, Shortoff Mountain, and Rabun Bald that will certainly leave you breathless. Built by Forest Service in 1934, this National Historic Landmark served as a vital lookout tower for three decades until being decommissioned in 1969. The only way to publicly access the tower is by the 6.2-mile Yellow Mountain Trail, but the tower has several shorter private access points that open up frequently throughout the year for the public to use.
