We stopped by this neat little piece of history on our way up the Bald. Its a great way to stretch your legs. There is a story board with neat pictures of the early 1900's rangers who lived with their spouses in the home and their recollections of the place. Its really neat to see the trees in the pictures... 更多
Be sure and stop here on your way up to Wayah Bald. Built in 1916, it was the first Ranger Station in the Nantahala National Forest. Set in a small clearing on the left side of the road with a small parking lot. It's just a short walk to the station, garage and outhouse. Across the road, on the curve,... 更多
This old ranger station is an example of how people dedicated their lives to service back in the day. Pretty spartan existence including a "two holer" a few feet down the path. We stopped to explore on our way to the tower and thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful setting. Hint: note the fireplace with vines covering half and the workmanship of... 更多
Wilson Lick Ranger Station starts out with a story board of sorts that tells some of the history of the cabins and how they were used. There's little walking, as it's only about 100 yards to the ranger station from the parking area.Summer and Fall are the best times to be here, colorful leaves. Combine this with Wayah Bald Tower... 更多
You come upon Wilson Lick Ranger Station on the way up to Wayah Bald Overlook. This is a beautiful spot filled with history. Definitely worth the time to stop and check it out.
We stumbled upon this great little spot on our way to the Wayah Bald Lookout Tower. Lots of history and an historic cabin that was used by the first park rangers to work in the park. Check it out!
We stopped on our way up the mountain. Wilson Lick is a beautifully preserved peek into what life on the mountain in the early 20th century. As mentioned in other reviews, these were people that were tough, mountain top living wouldn't have been for the faint of heart. We enjoyed our brief stop at Wilson Lick on our way up... 更多
Interesting place to stop and read sign, as you work your way up Wayah Road to "Wayah Bald" a former firetower structure , which has been redone and fabulous to see and view the surrounding mountains. This is along the App. Trail...A must see both places when in the area...
Basically, an old Ranger Station but would make a nice background for portraits or picnic. Its on the road to Wayah Bald which has great views. Its out in the Sticks on a mountain road with switchbacks.
Worth stopping on the way up the gravel road to the Wayah Lookout. An abandoned ranger station from the early 20th C set is a meadow. Not a destination in itself.
