Pisgah National Forest


Grandfather Ranger District:

The Grandfather Ranger District of Pisgah National Forest includes the land between the McDowell/Buncombe county line at Black Mountain east of Asheville to US-321 between Blowing Rock and Lenoir.  On the north, the Blue Ridge Parkway marks the boundary of the district and on the south, US-70, Lake James, Table Rock, and Collettsville mark the approximate boundary.  The Grandfather Ranger District was established in 1912 under the Weeks Act, which purchased an 8100-acre tract of land.  The district has grown since to more than 192,000 acres.
