Panthertown Valley

Panthertown Valley, referred to as the Yosemite of the East, lies on the eastern continental divide in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains. With more than 25 miles of designated trails in this 6,300 acre backcountry area visitors can enjoy deep gorges and broad valleys, mountain bogs and granitic rock domes, tranquil creeks and plunging waterfalls while hiking, biking or horseback riding. - source
 

 
Enjoy my video.  On the day, we hiked two loop trails, totaling 7 miles.  We saw four waterfalls and had beautiful views of the valley from Little Green Mountain and Salt Rock Gap.  Once again, my main source of information came from Romantic Asheville.
