Only a handful of primitive campsites are found off FR 74. This is an extremely remote portion of the Pisgah National Forest, so be sure to have all your provisions, including drinking water, before you head out. Aside from the nearby Corner Rock Picnic Area, I highly recommend a visit to Douglas Falls. As you stand beneath the mammoth rock overhang, the cool mist of the falls refreshes both your body and spirit. But remember not to bathe in any of the creeks unless you are using biodegradable soap. In addition to a few short hiking trails, you will find several bridle trails running through this small section of the Great Craggy Mountains.
