Things to See and Do
in Tellico Plains
There are many things to do in the
Cherokee National Forest. You can spend days sightseeing, visiting Bald
River Falls, The Cherohala Skyway, Buck Bald, Tellico River, Starr
Mountain, Indian Boundary Lake and many more beautiful sites.
If fishing is your passion, there
are numerous streams and rivers nearby, like the Tellico River, Hiwassee
River, and great trout streams like Citico Creek, North River and Bald
River and Brookshire Creek. Hunting is good along the Tennessee / North
Carolina state line and surrounding areas when in season.
Kayaking, canoeing and tubing can
be found nearby on Tellico River, Hiwassee River and Ocoee River.
Many hiking trails are available in
the forest for Hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. The nicest
trails are along the Cherohala Skyway and in the Slickrock-Citico Creek Wilderness
Area and on Starr Mountain, and in the Bald River Gorge Wilderness Area.
There are several good places
within 2 miles of Mountain View Cabins to eat, if you don't like to
cook. There are many local events taking place during the year as well,
such as The 4th. of July Street Dance, Car Shows, The Autumn Gold
Festival and monthly events at Historic Fort Loudoun. There are many
flea markets and yard sales going on all year long too.
So what are you waiting for come on
down and explore the area, and spend some time in one of our great
