Brevard Waterfalls- Moore Cove Falls

Sometimes a rainy day forces us to slow down and do things we don't normally do. This past weekend featured a good bit of rain, which nicely thwarted our climbing plans. But, in a brief break in the clouds, we grabbed our rain jackets and headed to check out the popular Moore Cove Trail.

From Looking Glass Outfitters, head into Pisgah National Forest on 276. You'll pass Looking Glass Falls on the right and continue a total of 6.6 miles to a parking area on the right just before a lovely stone bridge. The hike to Moore Cove Falls is easy and family-friendly, with very little elevation change.

The trail has clearly benefited from recent maintenance and is in excellent condition. Pass through a delightful oak canopy with incredibly straight and tall trees before the Moore Cove trail dead ends in 1.2 miles at the falls. Thanks to recent rains, the falls were gushing down an overhanging rock formation. We'll definitely keep this trail in mind for travelers asking for a low-key hike for the family with good scenery. Sometimes a rainy day helps you see the gem in your backyard. Happy trails!
