Forest Heritage Scenic Byway Professional Review and Guide

"A 79-mile loop through forest and countryside. North Carolina’s first scenic byway provides a sampling of some of the state’s best mountain scenery. The route passes through dense forests of conifers and hardwoods, along bold mountain trout streams, through picturesque farmlands, and across high mountain ridges. Part of the route follows old settlement roads and logging railroads that were developed in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Special attractions: Cradle of Forestry in America, Pisgah State Fish Hatchery, Looking Glass Rock Scenic Area, Looking Glass Falls, Sliding Rock, Shining Rock and Middle Prong wilderness areas, hiking and nature trails, exceptional trout fishing, abundant wildlife, spring blossoms. This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more."
