Pisgah National Forest is the oldest of its kind in the eastern US. With over 500,000 acres and 1,600 miles of trail, some of the best overlooks and waterfalls are often overlooked. We will meet at Ecusta Brewing, then you will follow me to the trailhead, a ~30 minute scenic drive including a bit of dirt road. 2-wheel drive vehicles will have no problem, the road is well-maintained. Starting at the trailhead, we will run a ~7 mile loop with 1,400' of vertical. The run parallels a beautiful mountain stream with several cascades, then climbs its way up to one of the best overlooks in the forest - Slate Rock. Towering over the Pink Beds Valley, the overlook includes views of nearby Pilot Rock and the distant high peaks of the Great Balsam Range. I would argue that the views are far better than John Rock, Cedar Rock, or even Looking Glass Rock. Its limited popularity is due mostly to its remoteness and difficulty to navigate due to several unmarked trails along the way. Afterward, we'll head back to Brevard and enjoy a cold beverage and/or food at Ecusta Brewing at the entrance to the National Forest.
Il tuo host
With 5 years of extensive van-based travels, I've logged well over 10,000 miles on the trail across the better half of the US and parts of Canada and Mexico. After a few years, I knew I wanted to settle in Western North Carolina. I've explored every corner of Pisgah National Forest and I know where all the best waterfalls and overlooks are, as well as the best trail running loops. I began my career as a trail and ultrarunner in 2015, with limited experience running until 2012. Since then, I've competed in several races including multiple 50-milers and one 100-miler in 2018. I spend countless hours on the trail in Pisgah and can frequently be found attempting solo 20+ mile runs in the forest - but I still know what it takes to start from scratch. As of 2019, I am the only permitted Trail Running Guide in Pisgah National Forest.
