Smoky Mountain Guide
With elevations over 6,000 feet, the area offers hundreds of attractions including kayaking and white water rafting on the raging Nantahala River, kid friendly rafting on the Tuckasegee River, world class mountain biking at Tsali Recreation Park, hiking Deep Creek or the Appalachian Trail, boating and fishing on the 10,000 acre Fontana Lake and snow skiing at Maggie Valley! For motorcycle enthusiasts there’s the famous Tail of the Dragon or Moonshiner 28. And don’t forget scenic train rides on the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad with themed rides like the Polar Express. Or, if you wish, enjoy the night life at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino.
If you love to fish, the best stocked rivers in the Southeast -- the Tuckaseegee and Oconaluftee Rivers-- are just minutes away and Bryson City and Cherokee have some of the best fly fishing around! Home of the first and only fly-fishing trail in the US, there are so many ways to enjoy rivers and streams, tournaments, trout farms, and more.
