Natural Beauty In Every Direction
Western North Carolina is known far and wide for its virgin forests, majestic mountain ranges, and ideal climate. Lake Toxaway is located in the heart of this pristine landscape, surrounded by more than 10,000 acres of national forests and state parks, four of which border the property: Gorges State Park, Nantahala National Forest, Pisgah National Forest, and DuPont State Forest. Just down the road lie more natural wonders – waterfalls, rivers, scenic trials, virgin forests, and more – all made accessible by the celebrated Blue Ridge Parkway. These ancient rolling hills enveloping Lake Toxaway provide a great opportunity for outdoor activities and recreation such as hiking, fishing, biking, and river adventures. After a day in the great outdoors, members and guests can explore the nearby towns of Cashiers, Highlands, Brevard, and Asheville.
