Took the stairs across the street from the Wayah Fire tower - 3.5 out and back. Or should I say up and down. Steady incline the whole way with a couple steeper parts as well as places where it levels out enough to take a quick break. Lots of forest cover until you reach the top. The 1/4 mike walk up the bald/meadow to the top is the highlight. Amazing views in every direction. Solid quick workout and a beautiful walk up in the mountains of Nantahala.
