Whitewater Falls to reopen

The Whitewater Falls viewing area is on track to reopen by July 4 after being closed since wildfire destroyed it in November 2016.

The fire destroyed the staircase and access to the observation deck. The National Forest Service awarded Andrews-based Williams Brothers Construction an $85,000 contract to rebuild it, and the Foothills Trail Club secured a $5,000 grant from REI to assist in redecking the trail bridge over Whitewater River. 

Whitewater Falls is located in the Nantahala National Forest near Cashiers.
