We’ve added two new GPS maps of big area trail systems: Wilson Creek, in the Pisgah National Forest near Grandfather Mountain, and Panthertown, in the Nantahala National Forest near Lake Toxaway. Both of these trail systems, although very different, have two common types of destinations within them: waterfalls and trails cliff-top views. And both trail systems have trails open to both bikes and hikers!
Harper Creek Falls is in the Wilson Creek area and the centerpiece of a Best Hike in that area. Several other falls exist in the area as well. In Panthertown, choose from Schoolhouse Falls, Greenland Creek Falls, Wilderness Falls, and several more!
Cliff top views in the Wilson Creek Area include overlooks at Big and Little Lost Cove Cliffs, affording panoramas up to Grandfather Mountain. And in Panthertown, you get Big and Little Green Mountains, as well as the more subtle Salt Rock, among others. Both areas are prime destinations for hiking in the area, so we hope these maps will help you get out there and explore them! Links to the maps, where you can view and download to Google Earth or your GPS, are below.
