Short Western NC Mtn Tour - Nantahala Lk Camping availability?
Finally getting a break from the hot weather this weekend so heading out on a 3-4 day tour. Plan on leaving Franklin, NC early Friday and heading out to Nantahala Lake area via the scenic Mtn Waters Byway. Will have to climb Wayah Crest on the way but other than that should be a nice downhill to the Lake. Plan heading to Tsali Saturday and spending the day exploring the area. Possibly ride down to Fontana Dam. Not sure where the third day will take me but probably towards Bryson City area. Head back to Franklin the following day via 28 along the Little Tennessee River. If anybody is aware of any primitive camping along the shores of Nantahala Lake that is bicycle accessable would love to hear from you.
