An hour away and a fairly short hike up an old Jeep road, or a bit of a longer hike on the Appalachian Trail, the view from this fire tower is outstanding.

“Sitting at over 5300 feet, this mountain top offers some of the best views around that you can get to by car! There is a large parking area at the op of the mountain but warning, its a long winding road to get there! Sunset offers the most amazing shots, just be sure to leave the chalet in plenty of time! Give your self 1.5 hours, especially ig you are not use to those curves! Dogs are allowed! Interestingly, the Appalachian and Bartram Trails go through here (you will see the path), so walk down a few feet and you can tell your friends you walked the trail! ”

“This beautiful lake is located in the Nantahala National Forest and is a major source of hydroelectric power for the region. It supplies water to the Nantahala River; one of the nation's top rafting and kayaking destinations. Great for swimming, boating, skiing and fishing. Great for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, trout, salmon, catfish and different species of panfish.”
