Bring your spirit of adventure and fun for these lovely trails and scenery in North Carolina.

Total distance to hike: approximately 5 miles

At Whiteside Mountain, we will hike two mile loop with many spectacular views, including one of Devils Courthouse of the Silver Slip waterfall, which is across the valley. We will have lunch from a rock platform with wonderful views. Our next stop is Dry Falls east of Highlands. Dry Falls is a spectacular falls near Highlands, off of Hwy 64. It has the unique attraction of a walkway which allows visitors to walk behind the falls. While in the Highlands area, we will also hike the Glen Falls trail. The Glen Falls Trail is a steep trail which passes three waterfalls on the Western fork of Overflow Creek. These are beautiful hikes with lots of scenic views and waterfalls, and hopefully we will be graced with fall colors.
