Eastern Cherokee Reservation

Soco Falls

The Eastern Cherokee Indian Nation Land is officially known as the Qualla Boundary and is located in Western North Carolina just south of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and covers a total of 82 square miles. The land is a fragment of the original Cherokee Nation homeland  which used to stretch from Virginia to South Carolina, and west to present day Tennessee and Alabama.. The land was purchased back and today the tribe earns revenue through a combination of Federal/State funds, tourism, and Harrah's Cherokee Casino.

Tourism thrives through the many campgrounds, hiking trails including Mingo Falls and Soco Falls.

Hiking trails can be found on AllTrails.
