  • Wiseman's View just off Kistler Hwy (Old NC 105) is an easy drive on a well maintained dirt road and an easy walk from the parking lot for a panoramic view of the Gorge looking to the East.  more »
  • Awesome views. A 4 mile drive down a rather bumpy dirt road but worth it. A short 2/10 mile walk (also wheelchair accessible) with unbelievable views in all directions. I am planning another trip for ...  more »
  • This was a 4 mile drive up a winding gravel road at about 5-8 miles per hour, in a sedan. If you have a 4-wheel drive, I'm sure you could go a little faster. I kept saying to myself, "This better be w...  more »

  • A picture is worth a thousand words. I cant even describe how amazing the views are. Cant wait to return in summer to see it again. This time with all the color of summer.
  • 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. November 3, 2017 edits. Work crews made improvements to the view. They cut some of the view restricting scrub brush down, added new signs. The road, which had been smoothed, is back to being extremely rough at points. There are "washboards​" in the corners, ruts, rocks and other bumps to navigate over. A car with good/high ground clearance and driving in a low range gear is reccommended.
  • If you haven't been here...... go. Simple as that. This is a place to truly lose yourself.
  • Loved it. This is a must to see. Primitive camping spots all along the gravel road. Plenty of hiking trails other than wisemans overlook. Will be visiting again for sure! Go check it out!
  • My fiance and I went here and saw strange lights rise out of Brown Mountain. I have so many questions. What a beautiful view
