5 Things to Do During Summer in Cashiers

The Highlands-Cashiers plateau offers endless opportunities for your North Carolina summer vacation. Here are five of our favorite summer activities to put on your vacation itinerary:

1. Chase North Carolina Waterfalls

No visit to Cashiers is complete without visiting the waterfalls along the Mountain Waters Scenic Byway. Start your exploration with an easy hike to Silver Run Falls, a 25-foot waterfall in Cashiers. One of the most popular waterfalls in the summer is Bust Your Butt Falls, offering a natural slide and swimming hole to cool off from the heat!

2. Soak up the Sun at Lake Glenville

Visit Lake Glenville for the perfect summer day on the lake, just eight miles from Cashiers. Hang out at the beach at the Pines Recreation Area and enjoy swimming, fishing, or picnicking. Or reserve a boat rental and spend the day boating, tubing, skiing, paddle boarding, or kneeboarding.

3. Explore Scenic Hiking Trails

Explore the great outdoors near Cashiers during your summer getaway. Explore the two-mile Whiteside Mountain loop for panoramic views of Nantahala National Forest. Then, head to Panthertown Valley and choose from 30 miles of hiking trails past gorges, valleys, mountain bogs, rock domes, creeks, and waterfalls. 

4. Spend Time Exploring Cashiers

Cashiers hosts Groovin’ on the Green, a free summer concert series at The Village Green every summer. Bring lawn chairs, snacks, and drinks, and relax on the grass as you listen to the sounds of live music. Summer is also a great time to shop locally at Cashiers Farmers Market for produce, baked goods, jams, jellies, cheeses, and freshly baked pies. 

5. Enjoy Fly-Fishing

Cashiers is located in Jackson County, North Carolina’s Trout Capital! For exceptional fly-fishing in the area, head to the Tuckasegee River. If you would prefer to fish with a local guide, we recommend Brookings Anglers
