Pisgah National Forest - Review
The Pisgah National Forest Park which was formed in 1916 is home to some of the most amazing waterfalls, forest covers and mile high peaks. The Blue Ridge Mountain and the Great balsam mountains are a part of it and so are Bent Creek, Mills River, and Davidson River. There are many number of attractions in the forest such as Looking Glass Rock, John Rock, Black Balsam Knob, Sam Knob, Graveyard Fields, Skinny Dips Falls, Daniel Ridge Falls, Log Hollow Falls, Cove Creek Falls, Twin Falls, Slick Rock Falls, Pink Beds Hike, Mt. Pisgah, Courthouse Falls and much more. A great place for hiking, camping and fishing with family.

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.
