Wayah Bald, a great place to visit in Nantahala

Wayah Bald, a great place to visit in Nantahala

A visit to Wayah Bald and Tower is well worth the car journey. See the Wilson Lick Ranger Station, built in 1913, Wilson Lick is the first ranger station in the Nantahala National Forest. Continue another 3 miles up the gravel road to Wayah Bald which provides a beautiful view of Franklin. Take a short paved trail to the historic Wayah Bald Fire Tower. The tower offers a great view of the Appalachian Mountains in Georgia, Tennessee and both North and South Carolinas.  Picnic tables nearby allow for a great afternoon break or hike two long-distance trails, the Appalachain and Bartram Trails that cross the bald at the tower.  All Appalachian Trail hikers must pass the tower on their 2,200 mile journey from Georgia to Maine.
