LTC Criteria


Carolina Mountain Club & 

Forest Fire Lookout Association


  1. All hikes must meet a 1.0 mile roundtrip distance with the exception of Little Snowball.  Climbing of each tower is NOT a requirement of the LTC.
  2. One may climb the towers but only at one’s own risk.  However, climbing the towers to enjoy their views is highly recommended.
  3. While many towers are accessible by roads, reaching a tower by automobile will not  count towards a LTC completion.
