Welcome to the Bracken Mountain Recreation Area.
What is Bracken Mountain?
Bracken is a 395 acre property owned by the City of Brevard, which is currently under development as a recreation area.
Where is Bracken Mountain?
Bracken is located due west of downtown Brevard. In fact, if you stand on Main Street in downtown Brevard and look westward, you will see a distinct mountain range. Much of the mountain range,which you’ll see framed by the buildings along Main Street, are within Bracken. Bracken is west of Brevard Music Center, and abuts Pisgah National Forest.
Is Bracken Mountain Trail Open to the Public?
No, Bracken Mountain Trail is not open at the present time. Trails have not yet been developed, so it is difficult to access the property without trespassing. Out of respect for our neighbors, we ask that citizens refrain from entering the property until it has been formally opened. See below for a property development schedule.
