Visit North Carolina names the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest as one of 14 perfect picnic spots from around the state! Located in the far reaches of Graham County, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest is one of the last stands of virgin timber in the United States. Here you’ll find 400-year-old trees standing 100 feet tall and 20 feet around, and a carpet of wildflowers and moss welcome you to this natural cathedral.

Story
Graham County, North Carolina offers a variety of Smoky Mountain adventures and is becoming better known every year.  With a natural beauty still unspoiled by crowds, it is truly a rare find in today’s world.
Two-thirds of Graham County is National Forest Lands.  It is the home of Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, Slickrock Creek Wilderness Area, the Nantahala National Forest, and borders theGreat Smoky Mountains National Park. The Appalachian Trailwinds through the county on its trek from Georgia to Maine.  Lake Santeetlah’s shoreline is more than 75% National Forest; insurance that it will never be spoiled by development.  Many visitors enjoy the solitude of the lake even on the busiest of summer weekends. Fontana Lake has some 25 miles of water to explore.  The entire north shore is the Great Smoky Mountain National ParkFontana Dam is a must see for the vacationer.  And there are still two other rarely visited lakes to explore.

Some of our trout streams boast a national reputation. The Cheoah River has first class rapids for the white water enthusiast.  Tsali Recreational Area attracts both mountain bikers and horseback riders.

The county has three of the best motorcycle/sports car roads in America.  The Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap will challenge even the best riders/drivers with its 318 curves in 11 miles.  The 50 mile-long Cherohala Skyway is tamer, but offers unsurpassed views ofJoyce Kilmer and the Cherokee National Forest.  Moonshiner 28might bring-up an image of the old rum-runners of the past. And there are hundreds of miles of other great roads to explore in every direction.

Want to get in the woods?  Forest Service roads lead to some of the most remote places in the Appalachians where you can have a mountaintop or a waterfall to yourself for an afternoon.
