Overview
Enjoy a scenic guided tour of the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway from Asheville without having to worry about driving or directions.

Stop at Pisgah National Forest to view the first of three waterfalls while listening to a guide tell stories from the area.

Next, head to a state forest to visit the last two waterfalls before heading out on an easy to moderate hike through some of the oak and hickory forests. This hike is approximately 3.5 miles and comfortable shoes or hiking boots are recommended. Enjoy the falls while nibbling on light refreshments provided by the tour.

At the end of the tour, you are dropped back to your Asheville hotel.

I don’t know if the park allows swimming but the tour is not at a location long enough to let people swim. At the last and largest waterfall there is a rest and you could have a very quick get wet.

I have to admit I don’t remember the names of the waterfalls. Call Keith he always responds by days end. We stayed to view, take pictures, enjoy the surroundings for 10-15 minutes and moved on. Timing was great for our tour.
