Visited on a beautiful October morning. With some mobility issues and closure of the shorter trail we were not able to walk the trails. There were restrooms, picnic tables, and several displays at the trailhead. Sorry we were not able to hike a short way on the trail to the large trees. We had visited years ago and did back-packing in the area. Nice to return if just for a short visit.

This is a must-visit forest to experience what they were like pre-Columbus. It has a wonderful history of why and how it was preserved as virgin forest. The poplar trees are immense and magical. And it's part of a much larger area called the Slickrock Wilderness, and it sits on the NC/TN border. There are two loops to hike to be in the very peaceful poplar grove - the #43 trail. The left side of the lower loop is closed due to a landslide. You can hike up the open right side and then do the upper loop around the grove. The hike is fairly strenuous with its elevation gain and some stairs. It's around two miles in total. There are clean restrooms at the bottom.

My friend and I enjoyed an afternoon hike at this lovely spot tucked back in the Nantahala National Forest in far western NC. It's a rare old-growth forest and really peaceful. The only drawback is the well worn (and on this occasion muddy) paths. It's a popular place and gets a lot of traffic it seems. Nonetheless, well worth your time to enjoy some serenity in nature. Really beautiful in the summer.

This was a beautiful, moderate hike. Lots of greenery, some cute wildlife, and a fun trail! Because of high waters, one end of the trail is the closed so you can only enter from the right side. You can do most of the loop, but then you have to turn around and go back the other way, making it about 4 miles rather than two miles :)

If you’re already in the area, this is not a bad hike, but I wouldn’t recommend traveling any distance to see it. We traveled 2 1/2 hours & honestly we’re a little disappointed. The lower half has more downfall than any hike I’ve ever been on & no large trees. The upper half is nice with some very large Poplars & was enjoyable. Overall, about a 3.
