Pisgah National Forest, Asheville Reviews

  • Sliding rock is a favorite for the kids along with the water falls. We like to go to the sycamore flats and grill out while kids can run around and play or enjoy the river. Have had many birthday parties up here, free and nice and shady during hot summer days.

  • It's an amazing and beautiful place to visit. This is my second time visiting. There are many things to do here. However, I was here to explore only one aspect of the Pisgah national Forest and it was rock climbing. Definitely, there are different levels for every climbers. I enjoyed it very much both times.

  • A beautiful treasure. Plenty of waterfalls, hiking trails, vehicle pull offs for a picnic or a scenic overlooks. The Pisgah National Forest is a great place for photography, hiking, or even a scenic drive. Highly recommend this place. I have visited here several times to photography the area waterfalls

  • The beauty and diverse areas make hiking, driving and sight seeing a must for everyone visiting this area. Each visit I choose a different trail, this time was a challenging and rewarding hike to Douglas Falls from Craggy Gardens. 7.2 miles round-trip with multiple stream crossings and the spectacular falls at the turn around point. Not a hike for beginners.

  • Absolutely great camping experience. Free camping right on the river with beautiful scenery. Nice, clean open sites that can fit even the biggest of familes. We had 4 tents on our site and still had plenty of room for chairs and all our stuff including all the kids toys and stuff.
