Brevard is a quiet, peaceful little community located within the Pisgah National Forest of North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains. It lies in the heart of Transylyvania County and is known as the "land of the waterfalls and home to the white squirrel." These fascinating little creatures thrive in the Brevard area, and are truly snow white in color. They are so loved by the residents of Transylyvania County, that an ordinance was approved in 1986, making it unlawful to hunt, trap or kill any of the protected squirrels. Brevard, in Transylvania County, is also home to some of the state's most stunning scenery - more than 250 waterfalls, 200 miles of waterways and 470 miles of hiking trails can be found in the area. To say it's a mecca for vacationers and naturalists is an understatement. Just a few of the recreational opportunities available include camping, fishing, horseback riding, rock-climbing, backpacking, swimming, whitewater rafting, canoeing and golf. It is also the site of some of the best mountain biking trails in the east. There are close to two hundred well-marked biking trails in the Pisgah National Forest, all of them closely following the waterfalls and trout streams, and sometimes climbing to nearly 5000 feet. Brevard also has lots of shopping and dining options, and the Brevard Music Center and the Brevard College Performing Arts Center.

Brevard Weather & Climate

The Southwestern Mountains of North Carolina ranges from 800 feet to over 6,600 feet in elevation and the topography definitely affects the local weather. Expect temperatures to be 10 to 20 degrees cooler on the mountaintops than in the valleys below. Spring is unpredictable, particularly at the higher elevations. Snow may fall in March, but by May, things warm up with daytime highs in the 80s. Summer is warm and humid, but more pleasant at the higher elevations, with frequent afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Winter is generally moderate, but more extreme conditions can occur at the mountain peaks. Large snow amounts and severe low temperatures are rare away from the highest peaks. Ski resorts usually rely on snowmaking equipment to ensure a good base. In general, the climate is not extreme, and supports year round activities.
