Description

A seemingly endless sea of tree tops and leaf litter, Snowbird Backcountry Area occupies nearly 8,000 acres of the Nantahala National Forest. And, snaked with over 30 miles of well-manicured hiking trails and capping off Big Snowbird Creek, this winsome natural area is a must for North Carolina natives and environmentally savvy visitors.
