Chimney Tops


Chimney Tops is a mountain in the central Great Smoky Mountains National Park.  It has an elevation of 4,724 feet (1,440 m) above sea level.  It is one of the park's most recognizable geological structures and a popular hiking destination.

Chimney Tops is a double-capstone knob on the eastern slope of the Sugarland Mountain massif. This massif stretches north-to-south across the north-central section of the Smokies. Mount Le Conte dominates the area immediately east of Chimney Tops, and Mt. Mingus rises to the southeast. Thus, while the view from the summit is 360 degrees, Chimney Tops is practically "walled in" on three sides.
