Trails

Featured in Best in Tent Camping by Johnny Malloy.

Located adjacent to the Nantahala National Forest, campers and cabin users at Nelson’s Nantahala Hideaway can access the trails of the Appletree area directly from the campground. Over 15 miles of trails overlay the wooded ridges and the tumbling cascades of the forest. With a little effort you can be deep in the heart of the Appletree area on Piercy creek.

You can also walk the path of America’s most famous naturalist, William Bartram. The Bartram Trail actually leads to the boater launch site on the Nantahala River. Campers can stretch their legs on two shorter campground walks that offer nice rewards.

Suggested Hikes

  • Nelson Falls – ¼ mile; short walk to cascade.
  • Fidely’s Overlook – ½ mile, easy short distance but medium grade leading to southward views.
  • Bartram Trail to boat launch- 5.8 miles, medium difficulty, good views.
  • Piercy Creek – 2.7 miles to the creek, easy to medium difficulty, good trout fishing and historical hike.
  • Appletree – 5½ miles to the Appletree area, medium to challenging difficulty, one-way hike.
