Chimney Tops Map (Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Tennessee)
A special Backpacker Magazine topo map printed on waterproof, tearproof paper. Includes topographic map data from the USGS and detailed trip information
Follow fern-lined trails to scramble up a rocky pinnacle. From Newfound Gap Road, the twin-humped spire of Chimney Tops—rising 1,800 feet from the West Prong Little Pigeon River valley—beckons you (and countless others) to summit its slabs. But rather than taking the shorter, conga-line trail from the valley floor, start up on the Appalachian Crest, from Newfound Gap itself: This 10.5-mile round-trip lets you load up on solitude in both directions. Map includes turn-by-turn hiking directions and in-depth trip planning essentials to help you experience this BACKPACKER PRO adventure.
