So beautiful and a variety of things to do there for the whole family. Worth the visit and you'll want to stay another day. Kids will have a blast on sliding rock!

Absolutely loved Sliding Rock and the Moore Cove Trail hike ending in a waterfall. We started our day at Sliding Rock and ended with Looking Glass Falls. We wanted to spend another day, but did no have the time to do so.

The interesting thing about this hike is that so much of it is NOT in the trees. A lot of it is up on the bald where you can see the vista. The trail is not as steep as a lot in the area -- much easier for my 70-year-old mother (admittedly very fit!) I hope you go and enjoy.

We love driving through the forest, there are some wonderful waterfalls to see in the forest. You can fish, go for a swim or go down sliding rock. It is a wonderful place to take the family to.

We come to the Blue Ridge Parkway to escape the heat and crowds of the lowlands and we mostly achieved those goals on this trip. The campground has 4 circles, two are tent (C&D circles) and two are RV and camper sites(A&B circles). The tent sites each have a tent pad and picnic table, are wooded and fairly private, but...

Gorgeousness in my own backyard. Pisgah is great for hiking--camping--family camping at Davidson River--tubing at Sycamore Flats---accessible to Brevard and Hendersonville.

We drove from Hwy 276 to Hwy 151 stopped at many overlooks and saw many waterfalls! We loved stopping at the Mt. Pisgah to hike

Headed down to Pisgah in March with 2 friends and met several people who are now friends. Great riding. Lots of tech both up and down to challenge you. And a great vibe.

i Like to camp at the Davidson River Campground although it is pricey for the services that they have. The area is great with lots of waterfalls and hiking trails. not too far from where the "Hunger Games" was filmed
