Directions to this site can be confusing even when copying directions and using a GPS. But with perseverance we found our way. The paved road to Wayah Bald has many twists and turns and you wonder when you will find Forest Service Rd.69 when suddenly you see the sign. The road is hard packed but bumpy so take your time for it is a seemingly long 4 1/2 mile drive. At the top, there is a large parking area, picnic tables and toilets.
The walk to the tower is paved and not too steep. I would like to say that we visited on a beautiful day but it was misty though what we did see was worth the effort. The tower is not too high and if you decide against climbing the stairs the view is still good from the lower level.

Drove around Franklin per Gps instructions and ended up in residential area. Finally gave up and went downtown for some shopping

Trust your map (or GPS)! Despite the sense that you've left civilization, will run out of gas and never be found, you're on the right road. The view from the Bald is worth all of the questions from the back seat. ("Really? You're sure this leads to the Tower? I think we're Lost!") You're rewarded with a magnificent view of the NC Smoky Mountains at the intersection of the Appalachian and Bertram trails. If you're a pilot you have a great view of Macon County Airport 1A5 in the distance. It's all off the usual tourist track, and absolutely worth the time!

At 5500 feet the views are endless. After a 10 minute drive to the lookout, walk about 5 minutes to the top.
This is one of the highest points in the area. Make sure to plan your trip on a sunny day, as there is often a very heavy cloud cover

Fortunately I've been here before, so know it can be a much better experience. Be aware, the trek up is about 5 miles on a rugged dirt road.

Grab Subway in Franklin and head up to Wayah Bald.... you can eat lunch there and enjoy the short trails and views. Beautiful spot, off the beaten path. Enjoy!

It's February 2021, cold, wet, some snow and not very crowded on the Trails up here in the Nantahala Forest and Great Smoky Mountains. Which is exactly why we rented a cabin for the month in the Cowee Valley 10 miles north of Franklin. Beautiful in the winter. You can really see the "bones" of the mountains without all the greenery. So having been up to Wayah Bald in the summer, we were anxious to see the fabulous views in the winter. Surprise! Before we could get on the road that climbs 8 miles up to Wayah Bald, there was a gate closing the road off. BUT we saw a couple cars just parked on the side and then the sign "Appalachian Trail Georgia to Maine" with arrows left and right. Wow a chance to walk a bit of the AT in the footsteps of so many other (braver!) hikers. So we chose the 'To Maine" trailhead which was up toward Wayah Bald, and did 1 mile in, turned and 1 mile out. Easy walk, too cloudy to see all the mountains, but the magic of the AT sufficed. Great fun.

We went there when it was raining and it was incredible. Not many people and we got to see where the Appalachian and Wayah trails cross. I can now mark this off my bucket list.

Stunning. I didn’t want to like it, but I think I saw God. There are so many mountains! Also the road was lined with the precious little cabins that I’m sure were full of happy vampire families or children-eating witches. Enchanting! Beautiful views all around.

This was a spur of the moment trip up the mountain. And yes, it is quite a drive up a dirt road to get there. It was a well maintained road and easy to drive. The wildflowers were beautiful all along the route. It was not the ideal weather day, but the view was still breathtaking! I would love to go again on a clear day in the Fall. I imagine how spectacular it could be!
