Hike to Moore Cove Falls

1.4 Miles Total - 150 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

This relatively easy hike in Pisgah National Forest leads to a 50 foot waterfall, whose water flows over a ledge, allowing hikers to walk behind it.

The hike relatively quick and has minimal elevation gain, making it a great hike for the family or a quick stop off if you're planning to do another hike in the same day. This part of the Pisgah National Forest is filled with scenic hikes.

Once you've parked your car, cross over the stream via a small foot bridge. This flat, smooth trail leads through a lush forest for 0.7 miles (following the yellow blazes) out to the falls.

Nice short walk to some pretty falls. There are many beautiful wildflowers along the trail in the spring.

Very pretty.

Nice short hike to a pretty waterfall.


Does anyone know if there are any benches along the path? Looking to take my mother in law, she has bad knees.
