Wildlife

Panther Ridge is a great jumping off place. . .

bulletHiking. . . hiking is a favorite activity at Panther Ridge.  For a short jaunt take the old road from the campground to the bench of Little Panthertail Mountain for a view of beautiful Lake Toxaway in the valley below.  Or visit the Forest Rangers' Stations for maps and descriptions of nearby trails including Panthertown Valley.  Two national forests, Pisgah and Nantahala, have boundaries within our county, as does our new state forest, Gorges State Park.

 

bulletWildlife viewing ... Deer, bears and other wildlife are regular visitors to our mountain.  DO NOT APPROACH THEM UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, NOR ALLOW A PET TO DO SO.

bulletResort Areas. . . Nearby are several well known resort areas: Lake Toxaway Estates, Burlingame, and Fairfield-Sapphire Valley are three thriving resort communities that evolved from earlier ventures begun around the turn of the twentieth century.   Panther Ridge is only minutes from these and other exclusive developments
