Shortoff Mountain Trail

  I've hiked many trails in Linville but never knew about this one! It looks awesome! Try the Upper creek falls if you like stunning water falls and great trails!

I hiked this once a long time ago with my older brother. I think I was maybe 12 or 13 years old. I remember it being one of the best experiences of my life.

When was the last time you got out in nature a bit? Shortoff Mountain Trail in Macon County, North Carolina is just what you need. In the Blue Ridge Mountains there are many great
hiking trails, there's no better way to enjoy these mountains. This part of North Carolina has a great deal of available outdoors activities. You'll have to go far from Seneca to get to Shortoff Mountain Trail but you always have a good time when you're hiking along it.
Paddling on Norton Creek is so much fun, and this is a popular place for people from Highlands. And if that's not enough there's plenty more cool stuff to do in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Get dripping wet paddling on Cullasaja River, and if you're looking for some flowing water? Try Bad Branch. Stay the night at Arrowmont Stables and Cabins, and Yellow Mountain Gap is a nice place to spend some time. Some of the water nearby flows, like Big Norton Prong, and Cold Springs Saddle Club Dam is not far at all from Shortoff Mountain Trail.
