County is located in the Appalachian Mountain range in
Western North Carolina, 30 miles southwest of Asheville, NC and 60
miles north of the Greenville-Spartanburg, SC area. The county is a
short drive to I-26 and I-40 intersections near Asheville and a 20
minute drive from the Asheville Regional Airport via a 4 lane
Over a third of the county is part of Pisgah National Forest, Dupont
State Forest and Gorges State Park, which is home to the largest
Black Bear Sanctuary. There is almost 500 miles of mountain trails in
the county for you to enjoy.
Or, if you prefer, the county overflows in entertainment such as,
opera, musicals, plays, classical symphony and contemporary music.
There are lots of wonderful discoveries awaiting you in Transylvania
