Take a boat shuttle on scenic Fontana Lake to Hazel Creek. Make an easy stroll to a backcountry camp, once the lumber town of Proctor. Explore the former townsite, heading up Hazel Creek to reach the relics of a mill, now covered in forest. Discover other area sites, including the Calhoun House. Late spring and summer are the best times to enjoy the boat ride on Fontana Lake. Warm weather also favors exploring the waters of Hazel Creek. The easy trail is enjoyable any time of year.
