YAY MORE MOUNTAINS! More touring the Must see Mountains of North Carolina brings us to Whiteside Mountain. Located between the towns of Cashiers and Highlands, North Carolina in Jackson County it`s just inside the North Carolina, Georgia Boarder. Whiteside Mountain is another mountain that has a huge exposed flank of Granite, but what sets this one apart from the others is that this one has a largest and tallest cliffs east of the Mississippi. Despite this the National Park service has restricted some of the trails around the mountain and allowed them to grow other due to dangerous winds. They have made new and safer trails that go up the back side of the mountain. The Trails themselves are rather tough to traverse and it`s recommended that Families stick to the lower level trials and only more experienced hikers traverse the higher trails. And like all the other Mountains I have posted about Whiteside Mountain has several Picnic areas, several ranger stations, Miles of trails both easy and tough, and some of the most difficult and extreme cliff climbing in North Carolina. So If you`re looking for some of the most extreme trails and climbing in North Carolina then Whiteside Mountain is your place to be.
