“Big Shoals Falls is a powerful sixty-foot waterfall in the Pisgah National Forest south of Highlands, NC. The deep plunge pool makes a great swimming hole. This is typically a secret, locals spot! I take an inner tube, inflator, sunscreen, towel and water/beer in my backpack to float in the lagoon area. Directions: From the main stop light in downtown Highlands (along US Highway 64), take Main Street, which turns into Horse Cove Road (toward the Nature Center). If you are driving east on US 64 (from Franklin), go straight at the light to stay on Main Street. If you are driving west on US 64 (from Cashiers), turn left onto Main Street. From the stoplight, drive down the ridge on a very curvy paved road for 3.7 miles. Turn right onto Walking Stick Rd (SR1608), an unpaved one-lane road with two-way traffic! Watch for the occasional oncoming car, but this is not a busy road at all. Drive 2.5 miles to a fork in the road and veer right, crossing a bridge. Go another quarter of a mile and turn right on FR4567 (sign is hidden in trees). Drive another quarter of a mile to a small, dirt parking area on the left. Look for the stake that says "Secret Falls." Sometimes (especially winter), this last road is gated. But, you can park and walk the extra quarter-mile.”

“A local Gem. "Yosemite of the East". My personal favorite hike is to School house Falls to take a refreshing swim and then hike on up to Little Green Mountain Overlook. (Be sure to download a trail map, trails are not marked the best and easy to get turned around)”

“If I only had time for one hike... Whiteside Mountain Trail would be my hike of choice. This excellent loop, designated a National Recreation Trail, climbs to the top of Whiteside Mountain, with its spectacular 700' high cliff walls lofting the hiker for amazing views. Take a camera, as the cliff-top views are lined with beautiful mountain laurel which blooms in mid-june. See relics from the past, when Whiteside Mountain was a tourist attraction. You'll pass through some pleasant woods along the way. From the corner of Main Street and NC 106 in Highlands, follow US 64 East for 5.4 miles. Turn right onto Whiteside Mt. Rd. (SR 1600). There is a sign for Whiteside Mountain Recreation Area. Follow for 1 mile to the signed parking area on the left. There is a $2.00/day area use fee at Whiteside Mountain Recreation Area.”

“ Great nature center and trails for families. Highlands Biological Station, Nature Center and Botanical Gardens - Highlands Nature Center was founded as the museum of the Highlands Biological Station in 1927, and was originally housed as an annex to the Hudson Library. Its present home, the Clark Foreman Museum building, was constructed between 1939 and 1941 by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) using native granite from the local quarry and wormy chestnut salvaged from the Nantahala National Forest. Following a renovation in 2001, the Nature Center now offers exhibits and year-round educational programming focusing on the biodiversity of the southern Appalachian region. ”
