Lake Fontana near Bryson City, yeah lake outings! Interesting fact, this lake is incredibly deep, but if you go down far enough you will find the remains of a previous town that was flooded into this here man made lake. Kinda creepy when swimming, cliff diving, or when your canoe tips.
All aboard for a historic and scenic journey through the majestic mountains and colorful countryside of Western North Carolina; over a sprawling lake, past rushing rivers, through a deep mountain gorge and into dark mountain tunnels. The railroad operates year-round, with schedules varying seasonally. All trains depart Bryson City.
