Additional Location Information
The surrounding area known as "Land of the Waterfalls" has approximately 250 waterfalls. For the hiking and biking enthusiast, Transylvania County has 2 State Parks and a National Park; Gorges State Park, Dupont State Forest, and the Pisgah National Forest. The Gorges State Park has an entrance to the east and west of Lake Toxaway in Sapphire and Rosman; it is the most challenging of the 3 Parks for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. The Pisgah National Forest has approximately 180 miles of hiking and biking trails, and 100 miles of horseback riding trails. It also has camping, fishing, hunting, and Looking Glass Falls – the most photographed waterfall south of Niagara. Panther Town Valley, which is part of the Pisgah National Forest, adjoins Lake Toxaway Estates. Dupont State Forest has 85 miles of trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. World Renowned Fly Fishing Guides from Davidson River Outfitters operate in the State & National Parks, and in trout streams in Lake Toxaway. Transylvania County is called, "Camp Country USA" for its Mecca of summer camps.
Transylvania County may be short on Disneyesque costumed characters, but its storybook charm and opportunities for adventure have delighted the young — and the young at heart — for over a century. It’s a natural amusement park with thrilling rides, magical scenery, interesting wildlife, hands-on arts and education, a killer toy store in the center of downtown Brevard and what might possibly be the best natural waterside around – Sliding Rock.
Lake Toxaway is Western North Carolina’s largest private lake, located at a 3010 foot elevation. With 14 miles of shoreline and 640 acres, this lake has pristine, drinkable quality water. The lake boasts a constant water level achieved by over a hundred streams and springs that fed the lake. Even in the extreme and exceptional drought of 2007 our water level was at full pool. Lake Toxaway is popular for boating, fishing, skiing, sailing and many other water sports. This private lake does not allow jet skis.
Lake Toxaway is surrounded by State and National Forests and Parks. Bordering the 5000 acres of Lake Toxaway Estates is the 10,000 acre Panthertown Valley Wilderness Area, part of the Nantahala National Forest, the 11,000 acre Gorges State Park, and the Pisgah National Forest. All of these parks and forest offer abundant opportunities to hike, view waterfalls, mountain bike, fly fish, camp and even hunt.
Ideally located halfway between Cashiers and Brevard - famous for the Brevard Music Festival and just over an hour to the Biltmore Estates in Asheville.
Historic Hendersonville is just 45 minutes away featuring the Flat Rock Playhouse.
Between the forests, the rivers, the lakes and the waterfalls, there are countless sites for family camping, picnicking, cycling and just letting young imaginations run wild. And if that isn’t enough to entice the child in your backseat, perhaps they just need to spend a little time with the salamanders over at the Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education or get the lowdown on Saturn’s Rings up at P.A.R.I. Crafty kids will appreciate family-friendly classes at several of the studios located on the 276 Art tour, including Mud Dabbers. And almost every single one of Transylvania County’s festivals has dedicated kid space and more things to excite your favorite elementary-schooler than she could shake a pixie-stick at. So when you’re planning your next family vacation, the question is not, "What can the kids do?" but "How can we possibility do it all?"
