The Nantahala Hiking Club recently constructed two information kiosks, with materials provide by the USFS Nantahala Ranger District, on the Appalachian Trail (AT) at Winding Stair Gap.
Winding Stair Gap is the closest access point to the AT from Franklin. It is located on US 64 West 10 miles from the overpass where US 23 goes South to Atlanta.
The kiosks, located just north and south of the gap, highlight Franklin as a designated AT Community, identify hiker services located in Franklin and provide area recreational information.
