Panthertown is an 8,765-acre mountain preserve that contains the headwaters of Tuckaseegee River and is known for its broad, flat valley flanked by cliffs rising several hundred feet. It’s one of those rare hidden Shangri-Las that because of its many streams and waterfalls, large rock exposures, biological diversity, and amazing trail network, is almost too wonderful to believe when you first experience it.
Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock Wilderness
The Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock Wilderness straddles the North Carolina Tennessee border and is contained within the Little Santeetlah and Slickrock Creek watersheds. Congress designated the Joyce Kilmer-Slickrock Wilderness in 1975 and it now encompasses over 17,410 acres. It’s bounded on its western edge by the Citico Creek Wilderness.
