This is an old fire lookout tower that was built in 1934 by the Public Works Administration. To reach the Shuckstack Fire Tower you will follow the Appalachian Trail as it heads north into the Great Smoky Mountains. The tower is about 3.5 miles from the trailhead. This is a great secluded spot for dispersed camping. Be careful if you decided to climb the tower and the boards are beginning to come loose and rot.
