My brother, sister-in-law, and I were looking for an easy hiking trail to explore earlier this week. We settled on the Pink Beds Loop Trail in Pisgah Forest near Brevard, NC. We took the trail counter-clockwise and I think that is the best way to go. At 5.1 miles, this hike was a bit long but it was super easy... More

Rugged, beautiful, reasonably well marked, and many miles of possibilities. Don't skimp on the hiking shoes--like the Appalachian trail itself, this area can be a real ankle-breaker. But plenty of solitude, and lots to photograph.

It's a bit of a drive but go to linville falls and hike the trails! Then drive up to the top of the mountain to see wise man's view! Absolutely stunning!

I've been to Pisgah Nation Forest several times. It's wonderful in the fall. The colors are vibrant. It's not over crowded which make it a relaxing place to send a few days.

The campground manager was so rude when telling us we paid for one night in a double site, not two nights on a single as we had intended. Instead of showing us our mistake in a kind manner he told us it would be another $44 for that site or move to a single and pay $22. The sign was... More

A beautiful park to drive through along the BRP. The scenery is amazing and ranges from dense forests to rocky mountains. It can get cold in the higher elevations, so bring a jacket and some layers or a car with heated seats. It is probably the most majestic in the fall with the beautiful colors. A great, and pretty short... More

We had a wedding later in the day so unfortunately it was a bit of a scamper through the forest. We wished we had more time. We live in the Rockies so it takes something extra special to impress us in terms of the flora and fauna of forest and mountain. But this place is just lovely, a surprise around... More
