These days, craft beer and bikes tend to go hand in hand, and Brevard is a mecca for both. The town of just under 7,500 is the east coast home of the bike-friendly, Colorado-based Oskar Blues Brewery—Motto: Drink Beer, Ride Bikes, Repeat. Brevard offers easy access to and Dupont State Recreation Area and Pisgah National Forest, home to over 100 miles of miles of singletrack for bikers, hikers, and trail runners, along with nearby Looking Glass Rock as a prime climbing destination.

Waterfalls abound in this neck of the woods; Brevard and Transylvania County are known as the Land of Waterfalls. Also popular are trout fishing and tubing on the Davidson River, which flows just north of town. In addition to prime hiking trails and backpacking opportunities, Pisgah and Dupont offer entrance to hundreds of miles of world-class single track. As a result, Brevard has become a star on the national mountain biking scene.
