  • Really impressive falls, and easy to reach from the parking lot if you don't mind some stairs. Not much to do at the falls themselves, as space is fairly limited. We walked down, grabbed a few picture...  read more »
  • Looking Glass Falls is probably one of the best waterfalls in the Pisgah Forest. Its close to the entrance of the park so it isn't a super far drive and Sliding rock is right nearby. Its the perfect place to beat the heat with a quick dip in the fresh mountain water. Its also just stunning to sit on the rocks and enjoy if swimming isn't your thing.
  • Good access right off the road, just a short stairway down to the bottom. Its worth bringing swimsuits to swim right up to the falls or farther down the creek for a more relaxing dip. Its a must see in the area! Absolutely beautiful place!
  • Looking Glass gets a lot of attention because it's right off the main roads. It's a bit touristy. But, it's so pretty I still have to give it 4 stars.
  • Cold. But amazing! And refreshing!
  • Right beside the main road. No hiking needed. Just do down the stairs. It was congested when we went there end of June but beautiful falls.
