Ascent Trip Report

Rich Mountain is a drive-up on Forest Service Roads that intersect at the state line in Hurricane Gap. On the TN side it is FR31. Not sure of the FR# on the NC side but it was labeled Lookout Mountain Rd on my GPS. At Hurricane Gap, turn south and drive 1.1 miles to the summit.

The lookout tower was decrepit when I visited but was restored in 2018.

The summit elevation is listed at 3670 on the topo and 3668 on Madison County's GIS map.
