The southern districts of the Cherokee National Forest stretch from the southern tip of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to the Georgia state line and are bordered on the east by North Carolina. This is a vast area of managed forest, scenic drives, mountain peaks, white-water streams, and recreation areas. The opportunities for recreation are endless. If fishing is more your speed, you’ll surely enjoy the Hiwassee and Tellico Rivers; both are popular spots for reeling in large trout. These are just a sampling of outdoor activities in the area; don’t forget about hiking, hunting, mountain biking, shooting ranges, boating, water-skiing, nature photography, and wildlife viewing. The campgrounds in this eTrail include: Jake Best, Indian Boundary, North River, Dam Creek, Spivery Cove, Davis Branch, State Line, Holly Flatts, Quinn Springs, Lost Creek, Cholhowee, Parksville Lake, Thunder Rock, Sylco, and Tumbling Creek.

The Oswald Dome Trail Starts at Quinn Springs at the 800' level and is a 4 mile hike up to 3012' top which is an antenna farm. Great views on the way up. Strenuous.
