About Targhee National Forest
Most of the Caribbean in the Targhee National Forest is located in the eastern part of Targee County, North Carolina, about 60 miles north of Charlotte. The forest is home to a wide range of animal species, including a number of endangered species, many of which are found in intensively managed forest areas. It covers more than 12 million hectares (2.3 million square miles) and is the second largest national forest in North America, after the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
The area is becoming increasingly important due to its ecological integrity and has been declared a Biosphere Reserve by the United Nations as part of the World Heritage List of the International Union for Nature Conservation (IUCN).
Enjoy water sports such as canoeing in private boats, black-out, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing and other recreational activities in the national forest.
Caribbean Targhee offers some of the best water canoeing in the tranquil and picturesque forest area. There is an impassable waterfall with passage to Henrys Fork Falls, and there are several other waterfalls along the coast, as well as a number of small lakes and streams.
A permit fee is payable for private parties and dangerous situations can flood in the spring. In many places, the branched canals and high water levels of rivers and streams create dangerous conditions that boaters must take into account.
Boaters should check with the nearest forest department for up-to-date information or contact the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The Caribbean and Targhee National Forest is home to numerous native fish, and fishing in lakes, rivers and other waterways is still a favorite pastime for forest visitors.
A state fishing license is required and can be purchased from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission or from sporting goods stores in the area. There may be a limit on the number, size and type of fish you can hold, so make sure you use the permitted water species you want to fish in your area, as well as the right fishing equipment.
If you want to use your boat or boat for fishing, ask your destination office what type of boat is allowed there. If you are not encouraged to visit the next water by boat, follow the warning instructions for cleaning your ship. Use a proper landfill instead of throwing your waste into the water and follow all warnings and procedures to clean your ships. A copy of the state regulations covering these points can be purchased at the time of licensing.
Climbing, abseiling, mountaineering and ice climbing are just some of the many opportunities to experience the national forest. You can take part in guided climbing tours or simply improve your skills and climb the walls, climb in areas where you are not allowed, or climb with a group of other climbers. The forest and wilderness areas offer all the experience and skills, but you must follow all the rules of visitor protection and be safe when visiting our state forests.
Proximity fees and seasonal restrictions vary from place to place, so ask your destination for restrictions in advance and ask for restrictions at the destination.
In the entire forest there are hundreds of kilometers of hiking trails that can be used in summer. These paths range from steep and steep inclines to relatively flat paths covered with pine needles.
Most of these trails have rules, fees and seasonal restrictions, so it is advisable to find out about the route to explore before visiting the trail. Some areas that are not allowed to be used, such as the Great Lakes Trail and the Grand Canyon Trail, have not been used.
Many of the leisure facilities have paved paths accessible for wheelchair users, and in some places guided hikes can be offered. At most intersections there are unloading facilities, as well as parking lots and parking garages, but most of these intersections are beehives.
Hiking is one of the easiest ways to discover nature and is available to recreational athletes of all ages. Some trails are open for mountain bikes, but the use of non-motorized trails is limited to hikers and horses. The wilderness trail is closed to all vehicles except motor vehicles, hang gliders and bicycles. Please observe all visitor rules and exercise good security when visiting the State Forest.
