Hike Along The Tallest Cliffs In North Carolina On The Whiteside Mountain National Recreation Trail

Over in Jackson County between Cashiers and the Georgia border is an enormous mountain named for the towering white cliffs seen for miles and miles on its facade. The mountain contains the tallest such cliffs in all of North Carolina and there is a 1.9-mile loop trail that takes visitors all the way to the top and along those cliffs. In spite of the more than 500 feet in elevation gain, the trail is only rated as moderate by AllTrails – and it’s the perfect spot to get high above the local terrain and see some fantastic views.
