Brevard, North Carolina

Hike the Toxaway River Trail

1.25 Miles Total - Loop Trail

Originally added by Paris Robinson

Short hike with numerous stream crossings in Brevard, NC.

This easy 1.25 mile hike is located within the Lake Toxaway community. The trail itself follows a small creek as it winds through the valley. Be warned - there are numerous stream crossings. Most of the crossings are fairly easy at normal water levels, but can be difficult if the water is high. Small children may need assistance crossing. 

After Fisher Falls (~.6 mile marker), the trail will cut away from the river. You will come to a trail intersection - go left to continue another 1.65 miles to Raven Rock Falls, go right to return to the car. There is another small split near the end of the trail - the logging road will take you to the top of the paved road, and the trail will take you back near the picnic tables you passed at the start.
