  • This is my favorite view in the NC mountains so far, wow, breathtaking! The nice part about this is you can drive there and then the short path to the view is paved, so it's handicap accessible. Driving there is down a 5 mile dirt road, which is really fun to drive. I did it in a smart car, so anyone should be able to do it :-) We hiked the falls trails and then got in the car, continued down the dirt road to this place. Go, it's very much worth it!
  • I love Wisemans view. We used to be able to walk down to the cliffs and enjoy the spectacular scenery unspoiled by man. Now the NPS has constructed overviews for hikers and there are too few overlooks with too many people trying to get a peek. Still, you have to visit this part of Linville gorge to get a feel of the forces at work that created the valley. I would recommend a day trip to see the mountains and a night trip to view the Brown Mountain Lights. It's worth it.
  • OMG the view is amazing! One of the best mountain views I've ever seen
  • Excellent overlook of Linville gorge. It's worth the drive up. Mind the road, it's rough, but possible for two wheel drives to make it up.
  • This overlook provides excellent views of Table Rock mountain, Hawksbill mountain, and Shortoff mountain in Burke County NC. This overlook is wheelchair accessible and not very long. If you are looking for some longer hikes there are plenty in the area.
