Ascent Trip ReportGet a copy of Peter Barr's book, Hiking North Carolina's Lookout Towers, for driving directions. I drove up the north side from Whittier NC (near Bryson City) and descended the south side to Franklin. The road is gated a half-mile from the top. The firetower is not on the highest ground. The stairs were open but the cab was locked.
