With over 250 scenic waterfalls within Transylvania County alone, it’s about time for you to get outside and discover our very special Pisgah National Forest waterfall tours! Let us do all of the hard work as Pisgah Field School staff guides you to five incredible waterfalls in Pisgah using our 15-passenger van, leaving room for some education on the unique history of our Appalachian Mountains and a little flora and fauna ID along the way.
