“A wooded trail with a 360-degree view payoff on top of the mountain.”— Christine Esswein
There is a small clearing at the Appalachian Trail (AT) junction and few large rocks which make a great resting spot. Once you start along the Appalachian Trail (AT) there is less elevation gain along the top ridge of the mountain. The trail is wooded and sometimes tunnel like until you reach the summit. There is some scrambling at the peak to climb to the lookout tower.
This trail can also be done on horseback, and there is a tie up for the horses right before going out to the outcropping where the tower is.
The summit of Mt. Cammerer sits on the edge of a rocky outcropping overlooking the Pigeon River Gorge at almost 5,000 feet.
