Straight ahead are SharpTop Mountain and Flat Top Mountain. They are two of the three prominent summits that surround the Peaks of Otter area, approximately 6.5 miles distant.No one knows for certain why the area is called the Peaks of Otter. The Cherokee could have called the peaks "ottari," meaning high places. Settlers, arriving in the early 1800s, might have named the Peaks of Otter after Scotland's Ben Otter Mountain, which resembles Sharp Top. Or, perhaps the name refers to otters that once inhabited nearby rivers.
