Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Pisgah National Forest is a great destination for those who prefer mountain backpacking. Although it may be necessary to hike down a mountain a ways to get water, which is no easy feat, and camping spots are limited in certain areas due to narrow ridges and an abundance of underbrush, Pisgah makes up for these difficulties and then some by providing some of the most spectacular vistas on the East Coast.
