    Hiked this on New Years Day, which may have attributed to a crowded trail. The hike starts and ends steep, but the trail is well-maintained. There is a gravel road that also leads to the tower, so you may encounter non-hikers at the top. The view from the tower is fantastic on a clear day.

Rich Mountain Lookout Tower (LTC - 4/9/16)
Hiked from the parking area at Tanyard Gap (Lookout Mountain Rd, off highway 25/70, just NE of Hot Springs, NC) to Rich Mountain lookout tower via the AT. Came across at least a dozen thru-hikers. Nice hike, but pretty tough.
