Panthertown Valley has long been one of the best kept secrets in Western North Carolina. The valley is a 6,300 acre black bear preserve in the Nantahala National Forest near Lake Toxaway, NC that has often been called "The Yosemite of the East" for its many spectacular waterfalls and breathtaking views from granite balds. Whether you take an easy day hike to the icy cold plunge pool of iconic Schoolhouse Falls or a multi-day backpacking trip across the valley, Waterfalls of Panthertown Valley offers a wealth of information for planning and guiding your trips to Panthertown Valley.
