The Flume Professional Review and Guide

"This hike visits the mountaintop site of an old ranger cabin and fire-watching tower. Take the former tower access jeep road to meet the Appalachian Trail and climb to the peak of Smarts Mountain.

Ascend the metal observation tower and then visit the once-lonely quarters of the ranger cabin, now an Appalachian Trail shelter. Soak in incredible views. Return via the AT, grabbing more vistas of the mountains and of the fire tower atop Smarts Mountain while descending rocky Lambert Ridge."
