The dam at Lake Glenville is released periodically throughout the year transforming High Falls from a gentle giant into the incredible hulk. There are two access points for High Falls. One right next to Glenville Dam and another just a couple miles down the road.

The High Falls Trail is a 3.7 mile out and back trail located near at the Lake Glenville dam. (See map below) There is ample parking at the trail head. This hike features the High Falls waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and bird watching and is accessible year-round. During water release kayakers use the trail to carry their gear to the river below.

Footsteps of Generations

With a full calendar of events and activities, Cashiers Historical Society is making a bit of history itself. For all dates and information, check out CHS at cashiershistoricalsociety.org.

Have you noticed that every year, once March is over some sort of switch goes on and all around there are signs of spring. The traffic begins to pick up, local businesses are organizing their new merchandise, the sun sets after 5:00 P.M. and so on.

And while the winter chill may linger, it’s this time of the year Cashiers Historical Society begins their new season. So, Bring on Spring and the 2024 CHS Season!

In 1996, a group of interested residents met to discuss the formation of a Cashiers Valley Historical Society. Since the formation of CHS, the Society has planned activities and events that foster knowledge and appreciation of the history and traditions through hands-on activities, engaging speakers, tradition-bearing performers, and historical accurate demonstrations.

This year’s activities began with the continuation of Heritage Apple Day and the Mountain Heritage Lecture Series in coordination with the Friends of the Library. The lecture series began in February and will continue through the summer. A special lecture will be April 10. To celebrate Earth Month there will be an exclusive screening by the American Chestnut Foundation! Join CHS, Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust and the Friends of the Library in watching Clear Day Thunder: Rescuing the American Chestnut. The showing will begin at 4:00 P.M. at the Albert Carlton-Cashiers Community Library. Additional lectures will be each month May-August.

Activities continue in May with the fourth lecture and during Memorial Day weekend with a summer exhibit and the third annual Airing of the Quilts. There is no lack of quilting inspiration in the Cashiers area, so expect to see a variety of quilts exhibited by local and regional quilters. Additional annual events include the 19 Jan Wyatt Symposium on June 20, and in August, CHS will once again present the Cashiers Designer Showhouse.

Children’s events and activities are many and make up the last quarter of the year with a focus on the local children. Founders Day for area third and fourth graders will be celebrated September 26, Art in the Park for fifth and sixth graders will be October 4 and 11. The popular children’s event Christmas at Col. John’s Cabin will be November 29 through December 15.

Once again CHS has a full calendar with many unique events and programs that invite you to discover all that CHS has to offer. Experience the events, historical buildings, and grounds.
