Shuckstack Loop

Shuckstack Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This is a rewarding but long day hike or good backpack. Travel the history-sprinkled Lakeshore Trail with many pre-park relics. Enjoy views of Fontana Lake. Climb along secluded Lost Cove Creek to the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). Reach astonishing vistas from atop Shuckstack fire tower. Trace the A.T. back down to the trailhead and Fontana Lake."
