Waterfalls 'n Wine @ The Pisgah Field School

With over 250 waterfalls in Transylvania County alone, it’s no wonder you don’t know where to start looking for them! Let us do all of the hard work as Pisgah Field School staff guides you to five incredible waterfalls in Pisgah using our 15-passenger van, leaving room for some education on the unique history of our Appalachian Mountains and a little flora and fauna ID along the way. We’ll end the day in beautiful downtown Brevard for a private wine tasting at Broad Street Wines. Hiking up to 2-miles on uneven terrain required. Rain or shine event.
