Pisgah Forest

Pisgah Forest is an unincorporated community in Transylvania County, North Carolina, United States. Step out of the city life by going to DuPont State Recreational Forest and Looking Glass Rock. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Looking Glass Falls and Davidson River Outfitters. Venture out of the city with trips to Fred W. Symmes Chapel (in Cedar Mountain) and Bald Rock Heritage Preserve (in Cleveland). There's lots more to do: admire the sheer force of Moore Cove Falls, let the river carry you with Lazy Otter Outfitters, admire the majestic nature at Jones Gap State Park, and gain insight at Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education.
