Smarts Mountain

Smarts Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"Smarts Mountain is a lengthy hike over the truly scenic Lambert Ridge. Along the way, you’ll be treated to sweeping views of the surrounding forests.

There are two trailheads that leave from the Smarts Mountain parking area. Make sure you’re on the white-blazed Appalachian Trail (A.T.) and not the other blue-blazed Fire Road–Fire Tower Trail. There’s a beautiful stream running by the parking area if you need to water up, but be sure to treat it or run it through a filter. There’s space for about 10 cars or so in this dirt area. The woods here are fairly dense and this is a remote area, so make sure you have the right supplies, including bug repellent. The Lambert Ridge Trail up Smarts Mountain is the A.T. The trail starts out at a moderate grade. You’re hiking through a dense, lush forest of mostly maple, birch, and pine. The trail here is fairly well-defined and well marked as it winds its way up the hillside."
