About: Mount Guyot is a mountain in the eastern Great Smoky Mountains, located in the southeastern United States. At 6621 feet above sea level, Guyot is the fourth-highest summit in the eastern U.S., and the second-highest in the Great Smoky Mountains National Parkhttp://www.nps.gov/grsm/naturescience/mountains.htm. While the mountain is remote, the Appalachian Trail crosses its south slope, passing to within 300 feet of the summit. Mount Guyot lies on the Tennessee-North Carolina border, between Sevier County and Haywood County. While the border traverses the summit, Guyot is typically considered a North Carolina mountain. There are two peaks atop the mountain, appx. one-half mile apart, with the southwestern peak being the true summit. The mountain rises 3600 feet above its eastern base near Walnut Bottomhttp://www.topozone.com/map.asp?lat=35.71641&lon=-83.16489&datum=nad27&layer=DRG and 4000 feet above its western base near Greenbrier Cove. Ramsay Cascades, one of the park's most spectacular waterfalls, spills down a sandstone cliff near the bottom of Guyot's western slope. A dense virgin forest surrounds Guyot for miles in all directions. Human settlement never expanded deep into the eastern Smokies, so the area around Guyot and adjacent peaks suffered substantially less disturbance than the mountains in the western or central parts of the range. A long hike and a challenging bushwhack are required to reach the summit.
