Hickory Nut Gorge
- Rushing waters, rocky cliffs, a giant
waterfall and pristine forests make Hickory Nut Gorge a popular
destination for hikers, leaf-peepers and photography buffs. Over
eons, the Rocky Broad River has cut through the mountainous
terrain to create the 14-mile gorge, which drops about 1800 feet
between the town of Gerton and Lake Lure. Travelers driving from
Hendersonville or Black Mountain will first come to Bat Cave, a
town and a Nature Conservancy preserve by the same name. The
preserve protects the rare and endangered Indiana bat.
