Joyce Kilmer Memorial Trail

Joyce Kilmer Memorial Trail is a moderately easy, 2 mile hike in Nantahala National Forest that will take about 1 hour to complete with Fido. This figure eight shaped trail through old-growth forest of eastern hemlocks and tulip poplars is beautiful and offers stream crossings. Hunting in the surrounding game lands is in season September through March, except for Sundays, so be sure to wear bright orange. Please note that dogs are not required to be on a leash, except between April 1 and August 15; however, because of high visitation, rangers strongly advise hikers to keep dogs on a leash year-round.

    Rascal loves it!

    We live in the area and this is one of our 'hit the trail' favorite place to walk with our dog! We also enjoy the fitness trail at the Robbinsville high school.
