You know you’re in for a treat when a place is called “The Land of Waterfalls.”

There are hundreds of miles of gorgeous singletrack trails in the dark depths of Pisgah that lead to gorgeous views of those natural wonders.

And the experience is rewarding just about any time of the year. The seasons orchestrate entirely different vistas for the hiker who craves an intimate relationship with the natural wonders here.

Three long-distance recreational trails — the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, the Shut-In Trail, and the Art Loeb Trail — are part of an attempt to connect as many trail systems and natural scenic areas as possible for the greater enjoyment of hikers of all levels.
