Nantahala National Forest Whiteside Mountain Poster
Rising to an elevation of 4,930 ft in the Highlands and Cashiers area of Western North Carolina, Whiteside Mountain is a notable peak along the Eastern Continental Divide. Prominently featured in the Cherokee “Legend of the Spear Finger” and home to “The Shadow of the Bear”, the mountain has long been a popular tourist attraction dating back to the 1800’s. Becoming a part of the Nantahala National Forest in the 1970’s, the mountain is surrounded by a handful of unique ecosystems brimming with rare and endangered plants that put on a spectacular wildflower display each spring. The area boasts a 2.0 mile family friendly trail that ascends the mountains peak and loops around to a dozen stunning overlooks of the surrounding region with views as far south as Georgia and South Carolina.
