We take you out to the end of the Road to Nowhere and hike through a tunnel and through the various forest types (sometimes glimpsing deer, wild hogs and even black bears!) and then on down to Forney Creek and Lake Fontana - perfect for a swim at about 75 degrees! Lunch, snacks and refreshments are provided. The thrilling jet boat ride finishes the trip - allow four hours for the total adventure. More info on the Forney Creek Hike

Great opportunity to see the Bald Eagle, this one was recently seen close up on the Jetboat leg of the Forney Creek Hike.

Goldmine Loop -This season we offer a shorter hike alternative down to Lake Fontana for the combination trip. This 45-minute walk in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park will take you by the remains of an old homestead - where wild hogs and sometimes black bears are seen and then it's on to the lake for lunch and time for a swim before the jet boat picks us up for the exciting ride across the lake.
