Welcome to Sapphire Valley, one of the most beautiful places in the mountains of western North Carolina! There are hundreds of waterfalls and miles of hiking trails in this area and you could spend a lifetime trying to see everything. One third of Transylvania County is dedicated to State or National Forest and in addition to its many waterfalls the Sapphire Valley area offers, less density, and an abundance of outdoor adventures.
