Moore Cove Falls | Brevard Waterfalls Guide: This hike is understandably one of the more popular in Pisgah. A short hike (just under 1.5 miles round trip) on a well-marked trail provides access to this 50-foot waterfall. Suitable for young kids and less experienced hikers, the trail has some fun features like creeks and boulders to explore. Although the destination free-falling waterfall is pretty cool, the most awesome aspect of Moore Cove is the expansive dry cave that is behind the falls. The viewing platform offers a stable area of footing and perfect views of the falls and cave, while the shady cavern under the protruding rocks provides a unique experience from behind the veil of water, and offers opportunities for soaking up the damp spray to cool off on a hot day.
Directions from Brevard: Take NC-280 East. Take a left onto US-276 West into the main entrance for Pisgah National Forest. Proceed on US-276 for 6.8 miles to the parking area on the right, just before the highway crosses a prominent stone bridge.
