Topton is a small town located near Lake Nantahala in the mountains of western North Carolina. Here, the mountains stand guard over quaint, country towns and sparkling lakes and streams, making it a perfect place for a quiet and relaxing vacation. Activities on the Lake Nantahala include swimming, boating and fishing, with hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing and camping available onshore. The nearby Nantahala River, which is just south of the lake, is well known for its whitewater rafting and fly-fishing, and upstream from all the whitewater action are quite a few impression waterfalls. Just past the falls, take Wayah Road for a very scenic drive to Wayah Bald and its mile-high overlook from an old stone firetower. The town of Topton is also just a short drive to Maggie Valley, which attracts skiers and snowboarders from all over the East Coast to its snowy peaks in the wintertime. The town of Franklin is approximately 18 miles away and is known for its gem mining, antique shops, art galleries and fine restaurants. The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, Cherokee Indian Reservation and Great Smoky Mountains National Park are less than an hour away from Topton, and the Smoky Mountains resort town of Gatlinburg is an hour and a half away.
