Peter Barr, author of Hiking North Carolina's Lookout Towers, is reporting on his blog that the Tusquitee Ranger District will be hosting an access day for the Panther Top Lookout Tower in the Nantahala National Forest this coming Sunday, November 1.
USFS archaeologist Michael Orberndorf will be on-site staffing the tower and allowing visitors up to the cab and catwalk.
This is a great way for visitors to enjoy the fall colors during their peak at the lower elevations.
