  • When you've got 250 waterfalls to choose from, the competition for just which one you should venture out to gets pretty tough. 💦 We ranked our Top 10 Transylvania County waterfalls based on beauty and accessibility. Find your next adventure in the mountains of North Carolina (to one of these 10 perhaps). 😏 Link in our profile for the full list.

  • "Panthertown Valley is one of those unique places revered by many different groups of outdoor enthusiasts: hikers, photographers, backpackers, mountain bikers, waterfall seekers, and ecologists alike...as one of the foremost parcels of land in the southern Appalachian mountains." 🌲 The valley contains a network of hiking trails that travel to a variety of popular destinations within this 6,700 acre tract of high-elevation Forest Service land. 👉 At least 8 major waterfalls and countless smaller ones lie along the area's streams. You'll also find hikes that take you to cliff-top views of the surrounding mountains, or to sandy beaches on deep, clear swimming holes. 💦 Bring a picnic to your favorite hangout spot on one of these beaches, or perhaps to a cliff-top view where you can supplement it with a handful of wild blueberries. All the details on this magical spot from Hike WNC following the link in our profile.

  • We are excited to share an evolution for Transylvania County. Over the last year and a half we've listened to visitors and researched the branding of fellow cities and counties and have overwhelmingly found that so many associate their region with the town that garners the most name recognition. In our area that town is Brevard and to support fellow explorers adventuring to this region of western North Carolina, we're transitioning the brand that we've all known and loved since the early 1900's from Land of Waterfalls to Explore Brevard. 🌲 Dig in and explore everything these wondrous North Carolina mountains have to offer following the link in our profile. #landofwaterfalls #brevardnc #visitnc #transylvaniacounty #getoutside #ncfun #adventureisoutthere🎈#westernnorthcarolina
  • UPDATE! The @u.s.forestservice has made a safety call to close down all campgrounds and recreation sites, both for day use and overnight, in the Nantahala and the Pisgah National Forests by Thursday September 13th at noon. Cancelled reservations, for this timeframe, will be refunded. 🌲 They also strongly request that, due to expected wind and rainfall, the public not use trails or general forest areas. Emergency response times will be multiplied if an incident or medical emergency were to occur. 》》See a full list of closed sites in both campgrounds following the link in our profile.

  • "Many folks in search of the best waterfalls near Asheville are able to find tons of them in Transylvania County, which is home to Brevard. A 1.5-mile hike right off Highway 276 will lead you to Moore Cove Falls. This is one of the few in the area that you can walk behind. It’s one of our favorites and also close to popular spots like Looking Glass Falls and Sliding Rock." 💦 Thanks to NC Tripping for the feature.

  • Hope you're ready for another beautiful summer weekend in the mountains. As of this week, Headwaters State Forest is now open to the public. Located between Gorges State Park and DuPont State Recreational Forest, this will be a working forest with back country (rugged) recreation such as fishing, hiking and hunting on public game lands. Headwaters will also become a teaching center for forest stewardship. 🌲 After a heroic 10-year effort, 6,730 acres of land were purchased for the protection the rich headwaters of the East Fork of the French Broad River with waterfalls, mountain bogs and 25 miles of trout streams. 🍃  Many thanks to  @conservingcarolina, Conservation Fund and the NC Forest Service for great teamwork to create this State Forest.
