Description

There is a large rock face about 4-5 miles from where the road turns to gravel. There are pull outs on each side and piped spring on the right side. It’s popular with locals who you’ll likely find there filling up jugs as well.

Important! If you turn North onto FR 482 you will be in the South Toe River watershed and find the road impassable due to a landslide. Backtrack and go South from the Blue Ridge Parkway down FR 482.

    From Highway 70 it is 5.4 miles. The final 2.7 miles is a gravel road. The water looks and tastes great.

    Hey..We tried to find this a few weeks ago and got confused. Do you go all the way on 70 thru Old Fort into/towards Marion? Hubby thought we needed to turn left (coming from asheville) following the Pisgah National Forest signs (towards andrew’s geyser).

    Okay so I just got back from there and found it on a wim! From Asheville you can take the blue ridge parkway North until you get into The Pisgah National Forest. From there 428 South is not marked until you’re on it. If you find it you drive all the way down the windy dirt road very far past a few camp spots and keep a lookout on your left for a pvc pipe sticking out of the woods… OR you can take 70 North through Old Fort and turn left into Curtis Creek Campground. Drive about 7 or 8 miles up the road and the spring is on your right… The water looks and tastes great as mr. maximus said and the area is beautiful!

    I’ve been camping nearby and have looked for this a few times while driving by. Today I finally found it, but it’s not functional anymore. It looks like a tree fell and broke the pipe, and then a boulder

    I’ve been camping nearby and have looked for this a few times while driving by. Today I finally found it, but it’s not functional anymore. It looks like a tree fell on the pipe, and then a boulder did too, and one of them broke it. There’s a piece of pipe laying next to the part that goes into the rock wall, and that part has no spigot, just an open end that has a boulder blocking access to the end of it, but even if it were accessible, there’s nothing coming out.

    Does anyone know if this is functioning again.
