    Beautiful views. The road can be tricky and washed out at times. Especially if it had rained recently.  more »

    This is one of the most amazing places. After a short walk on a paved trail you come to the most amazing views. Beautiful panoramic of Hawksbill Mtn., Table Rock, the Chimneys, and Shortoff Mtn. Down ...  more »

    Best view in the State of North Carolina! It's a rough dirt road to the top. Once you reach the parking, the viewing area is a short 5-10min walk away. April 7, 2017 edits. There have been work crews making improvements at the view. They have cut some of the view restricting scrub brush down, added new signs and importantly smoothed the road to the top. It's a tremendous improvement since my first review. There are still some slight "washboards​" in the corners but overall it's a much better road to the top.

    Stunning view of the gorge, Table Rock, and Hawksbill Mountain after only a short, paved walk. A gravel road leads to the overlook, which can get washboarded and dusty quickly, but the drive is well worth it. Campsites and other trails are abundant along the road leading to the overlook.

    Excellent view. Very short hike from parking. Long Rocky drive to parking lot.

    One of my favorite places to take in the wilderness of Western NC. A great "cliff like" view down to the Linville River and Table Rock and Hawksbill Mtn's on the other side of the Gorge. Sunset or sunrise are truly awesome here but be sure to drive a truck or car you don't mind getting rattled to death. The road isn't in the best of shape so don't take your nice vehicle out there.
