Attractions Near Cashiers, North Carolina

Whiteside Mountain between Cashiers and Highlands

Whiteside Mountain (4,930 ft) in North Carolina, between Cashiers and Highlands offers stunning views of the transition from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Piedmont of South Carolina.  One of the most prominent features in the Highlands area, this 1000 ft vertical cliff along the south side of the mountain is a favorite amongst southeast rock climbers.  Rest assure though there is no vertical climbing required to do the 2 mile loop hiking trail from the north.

Drive toward Cashiers from Highlands on US 64. Near the county line, watch for the sign for the Whiteside parking area. The trail itself is a loop, and you can go either direction. The center section of the trail follows the top of Whiteside's steep South-facing cliffs, with great views of other rocky mountains in the area.
