The outdoors is what makes Brevard North Carolina so special and one of a kind in the US! If you love the outdoors we have everything right here, with activities in the unspoiled 50% of our county in National Forest and State parks as well as thousands of protected acres.


Not only do we have some of the finest golf courses where play is like a post card photo backdrop, with some of our counties famous 250+ waterfalls. Our biking with hundreds of miles of trails, canoeing, sliding rock, tubing, and trout fishing in the clearest water you will ever see, coming out of the National Forest.

Do you love rock climbing at Devils Courthouse, hiking tens of thousands of acres of land and trails, horseback riding in the DuPont State Forest and the Pisgah National Forest, the Gorges State Park, then you have come to the right place all here in Brevard NC. We are truly an outdoor enthusiasts dream come true. Literally there are hundreds of miles of trails for hikers and at any skill level. At the entrance to the Pisgah National Forest you will find outfitters, bike shops, climbing gear for rent and for sale.

Want to horseback ride again we have equestrian centers where you can board your own or take guided trail rides once again riding in what I feel has got to be the nations top trail areas in the county. Many of the trails are multi-use so biking in the mountains from off road to street biking has brought in cycling events as Assault on the Carolinas, the Pisgah Mountain Bike Adventure Race, French Broad Cycling Classic Brevard Criterion and the Swank 65 MTB to the Fat Tire adventure Race in the Spring


How about a lazy day relaxing in an inner tube floating down the French Broad River or take the more rapids in the Davidson River flowing in the Pisgah National Forest, passing the fly fishers catching native rainbow, brown and stocked trout known as Americas top 100 Streams where we host the Pisgah Fly Masters. Literally you can spend an entire day and not float all the areas or canoe and paddle them for that fact. Are you getting interested yet? Wait theirs more!

Look no further for a play of golf as mentioned above as most of our courses are so beautiful you will bring your camera to brag about the shot you hit while the background is of a waterfall, bold rushing creek or a mountain view that seems endless. What is so great is that our courses are year round as our weather even in the coldest months are temperate enough for a round or maybe two. Transylvania County offers four courses, driving ranges and even more within just a few more minutes driving in neighboring counties.

Ok, so what are you waiting for? Pack a lunch and picnic, during your vacation in nature’s bounty right here in Brevard North Carolina and you too will see that Brevard is the place to play and put work behind you!
