Trip Report NC Trip Report - Cataloochee, Brevard, Dupont Forest

Jump to last reply

Just returned from two days in Western North Carolina. For the first time we drove to the Cataloochee section of the GSMNP to try to see the elk - and they were easy to see! Several were in the fields close to the road (one was standing by the bathrooms!). Truly magnificent creatures. We spent two nights at the Innn of Brevard and that was a mixed bag. The Inn is over 120 years old and so stuffed full of furniture and what-nots that it is almost overwhelming. Our room was cold at night because of a lot of windows and limited heat. I would not recommend it at all for cold weather. Nice outdoor seating area for warm weather.

We ate at Marcos on Main Street in Brevard and were very pleased - an excellent Italian restaurant.

We drove to the Dupont Forest (only about 15 miles from Brevard) and visited Hooker Falls, Triple Falls and High Falls (used in filming "Last of the Mohicans") and were very impresed. Each has a short hike to view and well worth the trip.

On the way home we drove about 30 miles on the Blue Ridge Parkway - the colors and views are just magnificent right now.
