The Caney Fork has its headwaters in the Nantahala National Forest and is joined by many smaller rivulets as it cuts between Coward Mountain to the north and Shelton and Rich Mountains to the south and southeast. It drops over many ledges before confluencing with the Tuckasegee River at the community of East Laport. One may want to take a short side trip here to Judaculla Rock just north of the creek. The Rock has elaborate American Indian hieroglyphics that as yet have not been interpreted.
