Park
“Triple Falls in North Carolina DuPont Three Waterfall Hike 4.5 MILES, ROUND TRIP Visit five gorgeous waterfalls at DuPont State Forest, one of our favorite places to explore near Brevard. Meander the banks of the Little River to explore rolling forest filled with new green growth and the cascades of three of the park’s most popular waterfalls. This hike visits the spectacular single-drop cascade of High Falls, the gorgeous triple-tiered Triple Falls, and the wide symmetrical plunge of Hooker Falls.”

Natural Feature
“Water Fall just off the road, Highway 276 (Old Wagon Gap Road). This section of HWY 276 has a lot to offer, so a great day trip from Asheville, just outside the little town of Brevard, NC. Visit the Fish Hatchery and Education Center, Sliding Rock, Pink Beds, Cradle of Forestry and access the Blue Ridge Parkway around Mile Marker 300, near Pisgah Inn (have lunch at Pisgah Inn or in the town of Brevard).”

“Beautiful walk, and only a 1/3 of a mile hike from the parking area to the Lower Falls. There are quite a few steps and uphill sections.”

Waterfall
“Breath taking, easily accessible waterfall. To visit the waterfall it only takes a few flights of steps down. Due to this convenience, it is one of the more crowded sites. Good for those not comfortable with long hikes. GREAT spot for photos.”

Park
“Although it's a little farther away (about 35 minutes), this park is one of our favorites. Just take 64 west and stay on it (that'll require a left turn at the first traffic light, and a second left once you're in Brevard, just follow the signs for 64 west) a little over 20 miles. Once you get to the Lake Toxaway/Sapphire area, turn left onto NC 281. Go about a mile and turn left onto Grassy Ridge Rd. The park has an awesome visitor center, and just one trail - about 3 miles round trip to Rainbow Falls, and another 1/2 mile each way to Turtleback Falls. The hike is moderate, enjoyable and with a nice swimming hole at the top, with the option to slide down Turtleback Falls (a 20-foot drop) for the daring. It's a hike our whole family enjoys, especially in the summer when there's often a gelato stand in the trailhead parking lot (useful for bribing children to finish the hike). ”

“Skinny Dip Falls – One of our all-time favorite hikes and swimming spots, this ½ mile hike leads to a gorgeous set of falls with crystal-clear, ice-cold pools for swimming. Bring a mask! Extremely busy on summer weekends. Take the Blue Ridge Parkway south to mile marker 417. Park in the Looking Glass Rock overlook on the left. Cross the road and follow the path which begins just next to the mile marker. Go a couple hundred yards and look for wooden stairs leading up and to the left. Take these steps and continue on the trail for approx. ½ mile down to the creek. Prepare to be amazed. ”

Restaurant
“Their ribs (available after 5:30) and pulled-pork are unparalleled, though the cornmeal-crusted catfish is pretty great too. We inevitably order the hushpuppies, and sharing a meat & 3 order is usually enough. Pet-friendly patio.”

“The views from the Pisgah Inn are amazing! You can see from Lake Toxaway, on your right all the way to your left to Hendersville. We were told that on a clear day South Carolina was visible! The gift shop has a variety of quality souvenirs including Biltmore wines. The food was good too. ”
