Hike in Pisgah National Forest, NC, US – 25 Mile Loop

Pisgah National Forest is a National Forest in the Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina.

It is administered by the United States Forest Service, part of the United States Department of Agriculture. The Pisgah National Forest is completely contained within the state of North Carolina.

Rivers and trails:
Bent Creek, Mills River, and Davidson River – three major streams and tributaries of the French Broad River – are located in the Pisgah Ranger District, which lies on either side of the Blue Ridge Parkway south of Asheville, along the Pisgah Ridge and Balsam Mountains.

Three long-distance recreational trails – the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, the Shut-In Trail, and the Art Loeb Trail travel through this district.

Also included in the Pisgah Ranger District are the Shining Rock and Middle Prong Wildernesses. The Blue Ridge Parkway transects this National Forest, and many National Forest and Parkway trails intersect.
