  • Nantahala Outdoor Center is one of the region’s original stewards of open-air fun. Founded in 1972, NOC has grown with the industry itself, and offers educational programs and skills training along with the “raft, hike, pedal and paddle” adventures for which it’s famous. According to the NOC website, “It all started … with three friends who knew there was something special about this place, and something magical about the time spent in the river, in the hills and on the trails.” — J.B.
