Public Access to Catawba Falls May Be Forthcoming

posted in: WNC Hiking, WNC Waterfalls | 0

The Foothills Conservancy recently purchased a 23 acre tract of land for $400,000.00 on loan, which connects a publicly accessible road with the section of Pisgah National Forest containing Catawba Falls. Now, the conservancy has 2 years to repay the loan, which it hopes to do by selling the land as quickly as possible to the Forest Service. Until that time, public access will be limited to guided hikes but this represents a magnificent opportunity for residents and visitors of Western North Carolina. You can find out more and make a donation on the Foothills Conservancy’s web site.
