Sapphire Travel Guide

Sapphire, NC originated as a mining town.

In addition to White Water Falls, Sapphire is also home to Turtleback Falls, Rainbow Falls, and a number of other incredible, photo-worthy waterfalls.

Visitors looking to explore the wilderness in the area can take a visit to Horsepasture River and Nature Trails, where the river winds through the Western North Carolina Mountains and trout fishing is abundant. Or, they can treat themselves to an afternoon of horseback riding, plant education, and historical stories with the Whitewater Equestrian Center. Enthusiastic visitors could also spend some time golfing at the Sapphire National Golf Club, enjoying a facial at Canyon Spa at Lonesome Valley, or, during the winter, skiing and snowboarding at Ski Sapphire Valley Resort.
