This Covid-safe and dog-friendly small group tour is a great way to see the BEST waterfalls and views near Asheville in only a half day! Your guide shows you a mix of the biggest waterfalls and also “off the beaten path” waterfalls in Pisgah National Forest, home to 250+ waterfalls. We spend 4.5 hours visiting multi-tiered waterfalls, hidden pools, rock overhangs, and more! Your guide integrates hikes (according to your interests) for a total distance between 2-3 miles, walking at a leisurely pace and discussing the edible and medicinal properties of trees and wildflowers along the way. We then ascend to the Blue Ridge Parkway, enjoy wide-open vistas— with endless views of mountain peaks and fertile valleys (including the ones you just visited!) Guests may return to Asheville via the Blue Ridge Parkway, traveling through its iconic tunnels and soaking in even more stunning mountain views! Required footwear: sturdy tennis shoes or hiking boots. Recommended clothing: Rain wear (either rain jacket or poncho); multiple layers (for chilly mornings and higher elevation destinations).
