Pisgah national forest Is easily accessible from th Blue ridge parkway and many roads from the parkway make scenic drives. Most camping in the area is primitive.

Awesome mountain biking and hiking. Excellent campground. Streams abundant waterfalls - happy place. Keep in mind, the blue ridge parkway in Pisgah closes during the winter months.

I live and work near the Forest and it is truly beautiful but it is also coming under pressures from over-use and people who are disrespectful. If it's a pretty day expect to drive the speed of the seemingly billions of bikers on the road...More

I would consider the triple falls area. It is not a difficult hike and the waterfalls are great. With all of the recent rain, I am guessing they would be fantastic.

Trails and waterfalls are free. Sliding Rock is a modest charge for parking, but no admission charge per person.
