Tranquil, beautiful waterfalls

Visited Triple Falls and Hooker Falls, beautiful natural areas where parts of the Hunger Games were filmed. Nice hike to Triple Falls, steep incline but not too far.

This is a beautiful park, well maintained and with lifeguards at the Sliding Rock. If you need directions to locations within the park, be sure that you do not rely on your phone or GPS, as there is no internet access at all within the park. The signage is great, but you might need a paper map or already have... More

Sliding Rock is totally worth the shock you'll get when the water hits you! We went early one morning - around 9:30 - before the lifeguards are on duty. There were maybe 7 other people there and it was a blast. Our kids (ages 10 and 12) thought it was awesome. A totally unique experience to tell their friends about.... More

Rather you like hiking, rock climbing, swimming, biking or just sightseeing there is something here for you. You can even learn about the history and the different services of the forest service. My family and I make many trips out to Pisgah throughout the year.

Magical place in the south! Tons of great hiking and camping trails! Old growth trees and an actual rainforest! Take a solo trip or one with the family and get out and explore!

The parking along roadway is a bit scary in some places where people pull off the road for sliding rock and looking glass falls. If you are going to sliding rock, would go as early as possible, as lot fills up quickly. Saw a lot of people with small children parking far down the road on the side and walking... More
