10 Things to Do in Brevard, NC Before You Die

1. Visit waterfalls
With over 250 waterfalls in Transylvania County, you must check at least a few of them! Whitewater, Looking Glass, and Bridal Veil Falls are a few of the favorites.

2. Climb The Nose
The Nose is truly one of the most classic multi-pitch routes on the East Coast. If you are a trad leader, this three pitch route may be for you, or hire a local climbing guide to experience this gem.

3. Hike the Art Loeb
This popular trail sees traffic all year round, and with good reason. Pura Vida Adventures offers shuttle service if you would like to hike from Daniel Boone Campground to Davidson River Campground.

4. See a White Squirrel
You don't have to attend the White Squirrel Festival to see a white squirrel in Brevard, often called "White Squirrel Capital of the World." An estimated 27% of the local squirrel population is white - not albino! So see them for yourself!

5. Take the plunge at Sliding Rock
Just off 276 is a fabulous 60' natural rock slide. For $1 you can get a memorable jolt of adrenaline as you slide down the rock in some pretty chilly water!

6. Mountain Bike in Dupont Forest
Thanks to 80 miles of trails, Dupont State Forest has become a huge destination for single track lovers. Whether you are just dabbling with mountain biking or are already an addict, Dupont is a blast.

7. Eat ice cream at Dolly's
This tempting stand by the gates of Pisgah National Forest is not to be missed!

8. Get on the River!
Whether rafting and kayaking whitewater is your cup of tea or an easy tube down the Davidson is more your speed, the abundance of water in Transylvania County should be experienced up close and personally!

9. Go to a Concert
Brevard is a true hub for musicians, so be sure to sample either Brevard College's Porter Center, The Brevard Music Center, or Main Street Alive for great tunes.

10. Visit Looking Glass Outfitters!
Since 1985 we have been outfitting climbers, hikers, campers, runners, and travelers with quality gear to head into Pisgah National Forest and beyond. So come on in, you will be among friends!
