Pisgah Forest is a place filled with waterfalls of various heights and wonderful walking trails and wildlife in the form of everything from snails to frogs to hawks. And possibly larger predators which I tried to keep out of mind while enjoying my half-day in Pisgah Forest. For me, the main draw of Pisgah Forest is that it's only a few hours from my central North Carolina home, and thus an easy drive...considering it's a good place in which to "get lost" in nature. It was hard for me to believe that my work desk and home office and tax returns (this in March of 2019) were only a hundred or so miles away. Talk about a quick get-away in the truest form of the word!
