Whiteside Mountain Trail
With sheer, vertical cliffs that tower above the valley below, this trail features one of the county’s most recognizable peaks.
Due to erosion, Whiteside Mountain now boasts the highest vertical cliffs in the eastern United States—about 1,800 feet. Whiteside’s 4,930-foot crest can be attained by a loop trail that offers panoramic views. You may glimpse a peregrine falcon soaring overhead or perched on Whiteside’s rocky outcrops during spring or summer visits, but the cliff face is closed to rappelling and climbing during nesting season.
