Standing in the middle of Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest is a humbling experience to be sure, especially when you look straight up at the 450-year-old, 100-feet-tall natural giants. http://ow.ly/Zk3Si

We had to see it for ourselves! Fontana Dam is releasing flood water from the sluice gates after the past two weeks of rainfall. This is a very rare occurrence and the TVA reports that this will continue for several days until the lake reaches normal winter levels. Video: fb.me/760zaS3AH

Yellow Creek Falls is a great family activity with this short .33 mile walk and 70 foot waterfall. Along the way view the lower cascades, large trees, and seasonal flora and fauna. Tapoco Rd (Hwy 129) north out of Robbinsville, 2 miles past Yellow Creek Rd on the right. Photo by @joriefaker

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.
