Stonepile Gap is a pile of stones that mark a grave of a Cherokee woman named Trahlyta who was told to drink from a nearby spring (Porter Springs) and (depending on the story) either the Mountain Medicine Man or the Witch of Cedar Mountain would make her more beautiful with every drink. Rumors of her beautiful looks led Cherokee warrior Wahsega to ask her to marry him, but she declined his offer. He then kidnapped her and held her prisoner until she wasted away. As she was dying, she asked to be buried in the mountain where strangers could pass by and drop a stone on her grave. She would then grant them the wish of being happy and beautiful. According to reports, there were two separate occasions where people tried to move the pile of roacks for road work and someone died in an accident.
