List "North Carolina Lookout Tower Challenge" By wayfarer

Notes: This is a list of 24 hikes to firetowers created by the Carolina Mountain Club. More info and the rules for recognition can be found here on their website:

Two of the tower sites are not currently in the LOJ database but their nearby parent peaks are. The Little Snowball tower site is just northeast of Little Snowball Mountain. The tower itself has been removed to the Big Ivy Historical Campus and may be visited there. The Mount Noble tower site is on the southeast shoulder of Mount Noble.

There is an excellent book about these North Carolina firetowers and more titled "Hiking North Carolina's Lookout Towers" by Peter J. Barr.
