Always a perfect day and stay when here. The unseasonal temperatures permitted a late in the season visit. Waterfalls and creeks were flowing. Wildlife visible and extremely comfortable hiking conditions. Took the pictures upon our departure. Perfect ending to the day, trip and year. Thank...More

Cherokee National Forest is absolutely beautiful. The drive up the mountain to Chilhowee State park was AMAZING!! Can't wait to go back and have time to hike to the falls!!

Love going to the Smokies which are close by coming into Townsend. Lots of great places to hike, tube, picnic or just relax in the woods or by a mountain stream.

There are many roads that are not advertised that are well worth taking for scenery or leaf viewing. Beautiful time of the year is mid Oct. Look at the Parson's Branch Road for an out of the way trip.

Nice National Forest - worth the drive to Bald River Falls - take your bathing suit because it would be beautiful to swim there if it's warm.

I agree it is always cooler in the forest, I have a cabin up in the north Ga. mountains and find that it is definitely cooler. I liked The lost Creek Campground and Jacks Creek, they are both primitive but on the creek and... More
