So far we did rafting on the "Tuck" it was quite an experience . Now we're looking for waterfalls in the area (within 25-30 miles of Dillsboro) I've read lots of good reviews on the Highlands-Franklin area of Hwy 64- but I'm not comfortable with narrow roads !or strenuous hikes . Any suggestions ? Also going mining , but can't decide on Cherokee ruby mines or Mason's ruby & sapphire. We're absolutely enjoying this area and so far can only say wonderful things about the locals.
