Insider tips from the Sylvansport staff

“If you’re looking for an adventure for the whole family, explore Pisgah Forest and camp at the Davidson River Campground. Take a drive up the parkway to view Looking Glass waterfall, then go up to Sliding Rock for some fun river adventures and end the afternoon with a large ice cream at Dolly’s.” 


“I suggest going to Moore Creek Falls. It’s an easy walk to a nice waterfall and less crowded usually. After that, we’ll head to Hawg Wild for some barbecue on the way out.”  


 “The Cove Creek/Caney Bottom Loop Trail is a great day hike option – on the way you’ll see Cove Creek Falls and have many opportunities for swimming along lower sections of the creek. There’s even a mini “sliding rock” near the group campground – without the long lines. After a hike in Pisgah, we love going to Ecusta Brewing for food from Gordingos and a refreshing, truly local beer.” 


The Frying Pan Mountain Lookout Tower is a great option for those who want to see breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Typically, the views become even more spectacular during the leaf season in October.
