The Pisgah Gorge is a Jackson County treasure. The Gorge was formed over the centuries by erosion from two creeks, Little Bryant Creek and Big Bryant Creek, as they made their way down the mountain and merged to form Jones Creek in the valley below. The views are breathtaking and rival those in the Smokies to the north. The woods surrounding this gorge are filled with a generous variety of plants and animals. The Gorge itself is unique in that it is home to plants that normally are found in three different growing regions. Even hemlocks which normally grow in colder climes are indigenous here. Botanists from as far away as New York come to the Gorge to study the rare plants that can be seen here. As the gorge winds its way to the valley below, several natural structures have been formed, two amazing waterfalls and a natural bridge connecting both sides of the Gorge.
