With over 250 scenic waterfalls within Transylvania County alone, isn’t it time for you to get outside and discover the waterfalls in Pisgah National Forest? The Pisgah Field School will guide you to five incredible waterfalls in Pisgah, leaving room for some education on the unique history of our Appalachian Mountains and a little flora and fauna ID along the way. Looking for more things to do in Brevard and the surrounding area? We’ll end our trip in downtown Brevard with a wine tasting from our good friends at Broad Street Wines. Art galleries, restaurants and friendly faces are all ready to greet you as you continue your adventure in this picturesque community nestled in the NC Mountains. Need a place to stay and looking for hiking trails and tours near Asheville? Check out the Bed and Breakfast on Tiffany Hill for a prime home base between Asheville and Brevard and be sure to ask about our special Pisgah Field School discount.
