Looking for a way to better experience Mother Nature? Take a trip into the Nantahala National Forest and enjoy some of the many hiking trails in the forest. Nantahala National Forest surrounds Nantahala Lake, meaning you don't have to go far from your cabin to experience these trails. Not only do these hiking trails offer some amazing views of the scenery but there are plenty of chances to go bird watching. Bird watching, or birding, is a hobby consisting of the observation of birds in their natural habitats. What better place to view birds in nature than while hiking in Nantahala National Forest?
Your Nantahala hiking experience may vary, of course, depending on the time of year you visit. During the winter months, most of the birds may have already migrated to a warmer climate. If you catch them during the spring or fall months, you may have a better chance to catch the return of native Nantahala birds as well as non-native birds who have decided to make a stop in the forest during their travels. Either way, this is a fun and relaxing activity to include in your mountain vacation in North Carolina.
