Valuable information:

Wikiloc – Wikiloc is a free on-line GPS trail mapping service (free to upload anyway). Once you’ve set up an account they will charge you a one time fee of $3.99 to download GPS or Garmin coordinates to your device.

Trail Map – The best trail map of all the trails within Transylvania County is the National Geographic, Trails Illustrated Map for the Pisgah Ranger District. This map can be ordered on-line or purchased from many Brevard / Pisgah Forest merchants.

SAFETY – Please do not ignore warning signs on the trails! They are usually there because of a past, often fatal, accident. Be mindful of the top areas of waterfalls, they may look easy to navigate but this is one area where appearances are absolutely deceiving. When biking, always wear headgear – it saves more lives than you can imagine. When out on the trails, at a minimum, bring water and a flashlight.
