Peaks of Otter Sharp Top Shuttle

Tickets sold at the Sharp Top Store the day of departure.

Sharp Top Mountain Shuttle

Not everyone can hike a nearly 4,000-foot mountain, but it would be shame to deny anyone the view, so we provide transportation to within 1,500 of the scenic summit!

NOTE: The 1,500 foot hike from the shuttle drop-off area to the top of Sharp Top Mountain is a rocky, rugged, strenuous hike. You can hike a few hundred feet to see the view below but it is not recommended for individuals with mobility issues. Trips are generally hourly, but may run more frequently to meet passenger demand.
