We took this short video on a recent visit to Moore Cove Falls in Pisgah National Forest near Asheville. A fairly easy 3/4-mile hike takes you to this beautiful setting where you can walk behind the waterfall. It's near Looking Glass Falls and many other cascades, so you can see many in one day. It's along the Forest Heritage National Scenic Byway, so it's one of our favorite drives too. For info on this and 60 other waterfalls to visit in the North Carolina mountains, go to www.romanticasheville.com/waterfalls.htm.
