Drove through from the Blue Ridge Parkway down to Brevard and took in the scenery and waterfalls. The Rangers at the Visitors Center were helpful and recommended some hiking trails and we did enjoy a hike. The road from the Blue Ridge Parkway has a steep descent and a lot of curves so use your low gear

The Pisgah Forest is beautiful. There are many waterfalls that you can hike to. Some of them are a pretty good hike, but there are also some that you can access without having to walk more than 2 miles. The forest itself is refreshing and shades everything so the temperature is comfortable. There are multiple parking access points and I... More

We hike in various areas of Pisgah Forest regularly & it's my go to place when I want to have some time to reflect & enjoy nature. Some of the trails can be quite congested during the 'season' but there's always something new & interesting every time I visit. It's well worth the drive from my home to spend time... More

Classic scenery nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains.Well-curated by the Rangers, with informative outpost/ranger stations. Accessibility is also well thought of, and lots of maps and updated information available for hiking

With a number of 6000 ft peaks and balds here in Pisgah Forest, there is plenty of great views and excellent trails to hike! Home of the famous Art Loeb Trail and Cold Mtn, Black Balsam Knob, this is a wonderful place to visit!

This is a very nice waterfall in the Pisgah National Forest. If you are heading west ,do not miss Sliding Rock. If you are going east stop by The Pisgah Fish Hatchery. If you have the time hike to the top of Looking Glass. Then go west past the falls to the Blue Ridge Parkway and then head north to... More

I live here so I am a little bit prejudiced. The drive through the forest is so breathtaking. You can hit the Blueridge Parkway and drive all the way to Virginia. It is such an awe inspiring trip that will never be forgotten. Spring, summer and fall are the best months as you might find the Parkway closed in places... More

Lovely driving thru the forest and great hiking trails. Looking Glass Falls is spectacular. In the summer you can swim in the Sliding Rock area. Picnic areas and waterfalls.
