  • The scenery is amazing. I highly suggest to anyone to at least drive thru and see the beautiful waterfalls. if you are adventurous, take the plunge and slide down sliding rock. It is a thrill!!! Beware though, the water is cold. Fun family outing. places to picnic on the side of the road.
  • It's hard to describe the beauty of our national parks. Words just don't do them justice. Get out to as many as you can. Have fun, explore, and go on an adventure. Most importantly, Leave nothing but foot prints!
  • Stellar view at the top! It is a difficult climb that's very steep and rather long, so bring water. But the view at the top of the mountain is absolutely phenomenal and well worth it. Would recommend to photographers and nature lovers alike.
  • It is very beautiful. There are nice hiking trails and if you are tired of hiking you can just drive around.
  • I've been visiting and camping here for years. Between wading under Looking Glass Falls and going down Sliding Rock to great hiking trails and primitive camping, this park has so much to enjoy for the whole family!! The nearby mountain town of Brevard is worth stopping in. Lots of cute little shops and easy to walk around in.
