Are you ready for the best part of your trip to the great outdoors? We take night hikes in Pisgah National Forest to a whole new level with The Blue Ridge Sunset Tour! The mountains of Appalachia offer some of the most beautiful views and sunsets in the world, and we’ll take you to one of the most sought-after 360-degree views along the Blue Ridge Parkway. While waiting for sundown, our naturalist and guide will discuss the natural history of the Blue Ridge and surrounding Pisgah National Forest. Looking for night hikes near Brevard, NC and Asheville? Look no further than The Blue Ridge Sunset Tour! Please Note: You MUST be able to hike 2 miles on uneven, steep and rocky terrain. Please know your limitations!
