The Nantahala National Forest lies in the mountain and valleys of southwestern North Carolina. The largest of North Carolina's four National Forests, the Nantahala encompasses 531,148 acres with elevations ranging from 5,800 feet at Lone Bald in Jackson County to 1,200 feet in Cherokee County along Hiwassee River. The Forest is divided into three Districts, Cheoah in Robbinsville, NC, Tusquitee in Murphy, NC, and the Nantahala in Franklin, NC. All district names come from the Cherokee language. "Nantahala" is a Cherokee word meaning "land of the noon day sun," a fitting name for the Nantahala Gorge, where the sun only reaches to the valley floor at midday.The Nantahala National Forest was established in 1920 under authority of the 1911 Weeks Act. This act provided authority to acquire lands for national forests to protect watersheds, to provide timber, and to regulate the flow of navigable streams. In the Nantahala National Forest, visitors enjoy a wide variety of recreational activities from whitewater rafting to camping. With over 600 miles of trails, opportunities exist for hikers, mountain bikers, horse-back riders and off-highway vehicle riders.</p> <h3> Camping and Day-use Information</h3> <p> Enjoy camping or a picnic at one of the many day-use areas.

Whiteoak Trail travels through beautiful hardwood forests, and in the winter provides beautiful views of the Baxter Cliffs.</p></div> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 75px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48570&actid=50">Fork Ridge TR 285</a> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 75px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48572&actid=50">Green Ridge TR 287</a> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 75px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48574&actid=50">Hickey Fork TR 292</a> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 75px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48576&actid=50">Jerry Miller TR 286</a> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 75px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48578&actid=50">White Oak TR 293</a> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 50px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48616&actid=50">Special Day-Use Areas</a> <span onclick="raalp_toggledesc(this,'RAALP_48616')" style="font-size:xx-small;cursor:pointer;float:right;"><img src="/wps/PA_Recreation/images/plus.gif" alt="area description" /></span> <div id="RAALP_48616" style="margin:0 0 0 50px; display:none"><p> <a href="http://www.cs.unca.edu/nfsnc/recreation/connections/pisgah_day_use.pdf">http://www.cs.unca.edu/nfsnc/recreation/connections/pisgah_day_use.pdf</a></p></div> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 75px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48620&actid=50">Max Patch</a> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 75px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48622&actid=50">Murray Branch Picnic Area</a> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 75px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48626&actid=50">Roan Mountain</a> <span onclick="raalp_toggledesc(this,'RAALP_48626')" style="font-size:xx-small;cursor:pointer;float:right;"><img src="/wps/PA_Recreation/images/plus.gif" alt="area description" /></span> <div id="RAALP_48626" style="margin:0 0 0 75px; display:none"><p> Famous for its spectacular natural gardens of Catawba rhododendrons, Roan Mountain shelters a rich diversity of life, from spruce-fir forests to vast grassy balds.</p> <p> Roan Mountain is actually not one mountain, but a high ridge about 5 miles long. It ranges from a height of 6,286 feet at Roan High Knob to a low of 5,500 feet at Carver’s Gap. No one knows the origin of the mountain’s name. Some claim the name refers to the roan or reddish color of the mountain when rhododendrons bloom in June or the mountain ash berries appear in September. Others say the name comes from Daniel Boone’s roan horse, because he and his horse were frequent visitors.</p> <p> <a href="/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5366102.pdf">Check out the brochure.</a></p></div> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 100px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48630&actid=50">Cloudland TR 1000</a> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 100px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48628&actid=50">Roan Mountain Garden TR 1002</a> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 75px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48632&actid=50">Rocky Bluff Picnic Area</a> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 25px"> <a href ="/recarea/nfsnc/recreation/hiking/recarea/?recid=48954&actid=50">Grandfather Ranger District</a> <span onclick="raalp_toggledesc(this,'RAALP_48954')" style="font-size:xx-small;cursor:pointer;float:right;"><img src="/wps/PA_Recreation/images/plus.gif" alt="area description" /></span> <div id="RAALP_48954" style="margin:0 0 0 25px; display:none"><p> The lands that make up the Grandfather Ranger District are those public lands that run from the McDowell/Buncombe county line on Black Mountain just east of Asheville over to US 321 between Lenoir and Blowing Rock.

display:none"><p> The Birkhead Mountains Wilderness was established by the 1984 North Carolina Wilderness Act. The goals are to protect and preserve its natural resources and wilderness character and provide for public use. The Wilderness includes 5,160 acres at the northern end of the Uwharrie Mountains.</p> <p> These mountains are considered to be the oldest on the North American Continent. Evidence of early Indians dates back over 12,000 years. The Catawba Indians  inhabited the area when the Europeans began exploring the region in the late 1600’s. By 1760 settlement had begun in earnest, opened up by the explorers and traders along the Ocaneechi Trail.</p> <p> The Birkhead family raised a son, John Watson (Watt), who was born in 1858. The 3,000 acres that he acquired over the years were made up of many small tenant farms. Thus the mountain range became known locally as the Birkhead Mountains.</p> <p> This old plantation is the core of the Wilderness. Remember, as you use the Wilderness, your challenge is to leave no trace of your passing. This will protect and preserve the area as true wilderness. Evidence of early Indians and settlers can often be found. These archeological and historic artifacts and sites hold clues to America's past. If disturbed , a part of our heritage is lost forever. Federal law protects such sites and artifacts on public land. If you discover such remains please leave them undisturbed.</p> <p> All trails within the Wilderness are designated hiking trails. Travel by horse, motorized vehicle or bicycle is prohibited. A detailed map of the Wilderness is available at the District Ranger’s Office.</p></div> </li> <li style="clear:both;margin:0 0 0 50px"> <a href

The Nantahala National Forest lies in the mountain and valleys of southwestern North Carolina. The largest of North Carolina's four National Forests, the Nantahala encompasses 531,148 acres with elevations ranging from 5,800 feet at Lone Bald in Jackson County to 1,200 feet in Cherokee County along Hiwassee River. The Forest is divided into three Districts, Cheoah in Robbinsville, NC, Tusquitee in Murphy, NC, and the Nantahala in Franklin, NC. All district names come from the Cherokee language. "Nantahala" is a Cherokee word meaning "land of the noon day sun," a fitting name for the Nantahala Gorge, where the sun only reaches to the valley floor at midday.The Nantahala National Forest was established in 1920 under authority of the 1911 Weeks Act. This act provided authority to acquire lands for national forests to protect watersheds, to provide timber, and to regulate the flow of navigable streams. In the Nantahala National Forest, visitors enjoy a wide variety of recreational activities from whitewater rafting to camping. With over 600 miles of trails, opportunities exist for hikers, mountain bikers, horse-back riders and off-highway vehicle riders.</p> <h3> Camping and Day-use Information</h3> <p> Enjoy camping or a picnic at one of the many day-use areas.
