Friends of Panthertown is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Friends of Panthertown volunteers protect and care trails in Panthertown Valley, a treasured backcountry in Nantahala National Forest in western North Carolina.

The mission of the Friends of Panthertown is to work in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service to conserve this outstanding natural resource while improving the quality and experience of recreational opportunities in Panthertown Valley.

Panthertown Valley is one of the most spectacular areas in the southeast with cascading waterfalls, trout streams, panoramic views, sheer granite cliffs, the headwaters of the Tuckaseigee River, and biologically diverse habitats for wildlife and rare plant species. Because of its outstanding geologic formations, forests, streams and native plant life, Panthertown is designated as a Blue Ridge National Heritage Site and North Carolina Mountains Treasure Area.
