Oswald Dome (elevation 3,022 ft, 921 m) is a mountain located in the Cherokee National Forest in Polk County, Tennessee.

Description[edit]

Oswald Dome is located at approximately 3.2 miles west of Reliance, 5.5 miles northeast of Benton, and 2.9 miles south-southeast of Delano. The Hiwassee River flows along the north base. The mountain is accessible by Oswald Dome Road, a forest service road which connects to U.S. 64, and two trails. The Lowry Cove Trail begins on top of the mountain and heads north. Several radio/television transmitters are located on atop the mountain.[3] A fire tower was moved from the mountain to the Ocoee Whitewater Center in 2004.[4]
