Standing 4568' above sea level with 808' of prominence, Hightower Bald is one of Geogia's highest peaks - 3rd or 4th depending on the prominence used. It is the highest in a series of a half dozen mountain peaks all over 4,000 feet that run west to Eagle Mountain. This ridge-line lying in the Southern Nantahala Wilderness is one of the most remote areas in the state due to the rugged terrain, lack of roads, and... did I mention... NO trails. Absolutely perfect for those who like a little more free- form adventure in their hiking. Although, probably a little past peak color, there should still be some spectacular autumn colors.
Currently, the forecast is for sunny, clear skies.
