Brevard North Carolina Real Estate Blog: Welcome to the Land of Waterfalls

Welcome to the Land of Waterfalls

Transylvania County, in western North Carolina, is aptly named "Land of Waterfalls" because of the 250+ waterfalls that dot the 379 square miles of the county. Nearly one-third of the area is national forest land, making this an ideal location for anyone who enjoys the outdoors. Transylvania County is made up of a number of small towns including Brevard and is about a 45 minute drive southwest of Asheville and about 30 minutes east of the popular Cashiers-Highlands area.

High FallsOne of the most popular waterfall destinations is Dupont State Forest where you will find three spectacular waterfalls -  High Falls, Triple Falls, and Hooker Falls. The hiking trails that get you there vary from easy to moderate so they suit just about anyone. And during the popular fly fishing season, you'll likely see fisherman along the way as the attempt to entice a trout or two.

Another very popular waterfall hike is to Graveyard Fields. This is a 3.2 mile hike that reaches an elevation of 5320 ft. It begins at one of the scenic overlooks along the Blue Ridge Park way and loops through a flat valley with two spurs that will take you to some of the best photo opps around.

One of the more difficult waterfall hikes is Panthertown Valley. This is a more difficult 8-10 mile hike that starts at Cold Mountain trailhead but rewards you with 5 waterfalls.
