Great in the fall - plus two great waterfalls - Looking Glass and Sliding Rock - plus Cradle of Forrestry - and a stop at Pisgah In ( but in fall need reservations for restaurant!) Great ride from Hendersonville to Waynesville or vice versa - or from Asheville. Highly recommend

I can’t seem to locate a separate review for this trail so I’ll leave it here. First I’ll say there is very limited parking at the trailhead sign and the portajohns smell is horrendous! It might be easier to park at Lake Powhatan and begin hiking or biking from there. Yes you will encounter bikers and hikers although not all the way around. We started from the smelly parking lot and at the dead end we went right. As we came to the bridge over the stream we should have stayed straight to continue around the lake. Instead we crossed the bridge and again missed the loop path and walked uphill for 30 minutes before turning back around. We encountered many bikers here as well as a few hikers. Once we returned to the bridge and stream we got back on the paved path and walked to the fishing pier at the lake. Very nice area, portajohns there if emergency. We walked the path to the other side of the lake where there is a beach, not a great one but one. The parking lot and restrooms are up higher so never saw those. The path back from this point was narrower but not hard. Nice little pretty much flat hike.

You have to drive different locations but all on same road. It’s kinda fun to do a short hike and jump in car to next one. There are plenty of spots for swimming or just cooling off. Mostly shaded which is nice.

Amazing beauty all around and a Hikers paradise as you can spend a week here and enjoy it immensely hiking both trails and finding marked waterfalls and unmarked waterfalls. Camping paradise as well and always be prepped for those colder nights and Rain out of the Blue! Botanists and Animal lovers alike would love it too and we saw many bikers simply biking and stopping throughout this paradise. Enjoy the Mountainous Paradise of Pisgah National Forest! Nature at its Best!

Gorgeous. This place is a must see if you’re traveling through NC. The waterfalls are beautiful. The hikes are beautiful as well. I recommend the Davidson River Campground if you’re looking to camp.
