If you are in the Brevard/Asheville area and have family in town that don’t hike, but you want them to be outside, this is the perfect set of trails. Easy, level, close to the car, Andy Cove and the Exercise Trail are located beside the Pisgah Ranger District Office.
Andy Cove Trail is a good trail for youngsters: a swinging bridge, nice views of foliage and explanatory signs provide a learning experience.
Exercise Trail follows the Davidson River for 1.5 miles with views of a turn of the century Methodist Church.
Total mileage is 2.2 miles.
