We drove through the forest and fell in love. The scenery is beautiful, lots of places to stop and take pictures, have picnics and just take it all in. The history of it was great to learn, and we definitely fell in love with it.

Great scenery with river along much of the way. We did in light fog and still worth the drive. Might want to fill up with gas before starting out!!!

My husband and I hiked here on Thanksgiving Day. There was just a light dusting of snow and the temperature was in the thirties-perfect hiking weather. I must admit I did not read about the trail first and when I heard 'Pink' in the title I mistakenly assumed that this would be a 1-2 mile hike. It was five! However,... More

My friend and I hiked up to John Rock, a steady climb with the reward of breathtaking views over the blue ridge mountains as a reward. Gorgeous colours, stunning place. A must for everyone who visits NC

We were up in Pisgah in May and decided to return in October. This time we did the hikes by the ranger station and up past them a little. Really great area. HIghly recommend Mores Cove. Wonderful hike- bring a picnic and sit under rocks near small waterfall!

We visited Transylvania County many years ago and have always wanted to return. We saw a segment on UNC-TV several years ago about Craig Miller. He does waterfall tours, so we decided to hire him this time to take us to some of the out-of-the-way and more obscure areas. We traveled many winding mountain roads and saw some beautiful fall...

Winding roads are best traveled slowly to absorb the scenery. Even before full fall colors it is amazing beauty.

Nice relaxing day out. Lots of walking and hiking but when you get to the waterfalls it's worth it. Drive careful winding roads.
