Pisgah National Forest Reviews & Ratings

  • Awesome journey!! This area has some 270+ waterfalls ... we visited around 15 and made about 30 miles of hiking over a 3/4 day period. The ranger station is a great find. The volunteers are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They have small paper maps to share and you can find those waterfalls easily. Along with a few swimming holes.

  • It's Pisgah Game Lands to me own property joining it. We were Bear Hunting yesterday always great to live in the most beautiful mountains in the area. Cousin got a Bear good exercise great day.

  • Beautiful place. We went to Max Patch while we were there and fell in love with this place! The 360 views are absolutely gorgeous! We will definitely be coming back to explore more soon and to camp

  • So beautiful! There is an area you can splash around in right near the waterfall. You can get a good view of the Falls from the car if you don't want to walk down a huge staircase to reach the bottom of the falls.

  • About a mile away from Cold Mountain summit in a nice spot for the night. Pisgah offers some great views and many trails. Make sure to carry a map as the trails are not always marked and some animals trails can look like people trails.
