Hike to Moore Cove Falls

1.4 Miles Round Trip - 150 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Moore Cove Falls Trail - Search Nearby - 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.

Easy Worth It Hike

An easy hike that takes about 40 minutes there and back to see the beautiful falls

One of my favorites

This water fall requires a short hike and therefore a lot of tourist don't make the hike so there are less people, but still a good water fall no doubt.

Short Easy Hike

This short easy hike is exactly as described. There is a neat little nook you can hike up to at the height of the falls that is perfect for a small picnic!
