  • This pretty waterfall is right along the main road as you drive into the forest, there's an inlet for parallel parking, a stairway leads down to the falls. Continue on the same road for more falls, th...  more »

  • It's pretty but not as pretty as some of the other area falls, and it's super crowded in the summer, particularly on weekends. Big perk is that it is roadside and easy access.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!
