We went here on July 4th weekend. We spoke with the ranger who sent us out to a remote waterfall that is less travelled. This was a great decision as the other falls were packed. This small dirt road went back about three miles and we ended up a short hike from a beautiful waterfall shown in the photo. We... More

This is a great place for anything outdoors. Beautiful drives, biking trails, rock climbing, camping, hiking, fishing and just being in the outside. Very popular with people if all ages. There is a fish hatchery to visit as well. Stop by the visitors center for orientation and maps.

Since we'd been road trippin' and were so close to Pisgah National Forest, we decided to check out the campground and the Looking Glass Falls. The campground doesn't have water or sewer hookups but does have electric if you don't want to sleep in a tent. There is one loop in the campground that goes right up to the Davidson... More

A very scenic area with probably more things to do than we did. Hiking, biking, sight seeing, waterfalls , camping and a town near by. What more do you want.

Just an amazing area to enjoy! Just driving thru the mountains is an experience in itself! Then find some pull offs just to take in the View, the smells, the birds singing, it will make you happy to be alive! And if you enjoy hiking, camping and or just enjoying the outdoors, you have to check this area out!

Pisgah National Forest has so much nature available for free with the ability to just pull off the road where it is safe. We love Graveyard Falls off the Blue Ridge Parkway; Sliding Rock and Looking Glass on 276. We enjoy having picnics on the 475 B forest road where we can park off the road and walk down to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our two days in Pisgah National Forest, which included a trip to Sliding Rocks, Mt. Mitchell and a beautiful hike at Graveyard Fields. I wish we had more time to explore this natural paradise!

Such a beautiful place. Lots of rivers and trails and areas to picnic. Sliding rock was a huge hit with the kids.

Helpful ranger station. John's rock was great hike for me (in shape 49 year-old), my dad (great shape 74 year old) and 11 year old son. We did not do the whole loop but started on the left hand side of the parking lot as entering the fish hatchery area, as the park guide recommended. We hiked about 2.5 miles... More
