A view of the awesome Horsepasture River, “an 18.1-mile-long National Wild and Scenic river in the U.S. states of North Carolina and South Carolina. The river arises in Jackson County, North Carolina, and flows through the Jocassee Gorges area and ends at Lake Jocassee in South Carolina. Some of the land over which the river flows is part of the Pisgah National Forest, making it accessible to the public. North Carolina’s Gorges State Park offers easy access (source: Wikipedia).”
A series of stunning waterfalls through an otherwise remote area of forest makes the Gorges State Park region a fantastic experience for the wilderness enthusiast.
