Green Knob Firetower

About a hundred feet north of the Green Knob Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway, there is a trail that leads up to a firetower on the actual Green Knob. There is nothing at the overlook to tell people about this, I just happened to be looking up information about firetowers the night before and decided to check it out. The tower is open and the view is fantastic.

Great hike! Unfortunately the tower isn't open up top anymore but it is still a great destination to visit. However, there is a guided hike put on each year by one of the hiking clubs that does provide access to the top (they get a permit from the forestry service).
