“LISTEN to the guide when they are preparing you to go white water rafting....and row!!! Your boat needs to be moving faster than the rapids. :) Fun to do with friends. ”

“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.”

“If you are willing to drive 45 minutes towards the mountains then I highly suggest this hike for anyone in good shape. It is rated as a moderate hike and will get your heart pumping and you will have to watch for lots of roots so you don't fall. It is 3 miles round trip but when you arrive at the waterfall, you are at the base of the fall and there are lots of rocks you can walk on and get in the water. I usually take a snack to eat on a rock before hiking out. ”

“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.”

“Sky Valley is the highest point in GA...so why not play golf and enjoy the fresh air. During the summer it is 5-10 cooler than just down the mountain in Clayton. There are some pretty waterfalls in Sky Valley too.”
