Home of the first school of forestry and containing two of the first designated wilderness areas in the eastern United States, Pisgah National Forest is a remarkable land of hardwood forests, mile-high peaks, whitewater rivers, and cascading waterfalls. National Geographic’s Trails Illustrated map of Pisgah Ranger District, Pisgah National Forest delivers unmatched detail and valuable information to assist you in your exploration of this breathtaking wilderness that spans over 500,000 acres.

A trail chart with locations, mileage, difficulty ratings and designated use will help you choose a trail that’s right for your activity level and interest, whether you’re hiking, horseback riding, or mountain biking. Many recreation features are noted as well, including campgrounds, trailheads, river access, waterfalls, scenic viewpoints, and horse rental locations.
