All reviews great hike the blue ridge parkway elevation gain helicopter landing rewarding hike be careful south face looking glass hiking boots bring water fox mountain guides switchbacks miles rock trail climb erosion
Great hike but certainly tough for me. I had to stop at the top of a lot of the switchbacks. The view was definitely worth it. It was a warm day but thankfully the hike was pretty shady. We had a snack at the top.
This waterfall is amazing. The ability to walk down near the spill area is awesome. No one got too close, but most took a chance to test the water. It was simply incredible to see the rock formation and waterfall. The park is beautiful.

We hiked this trail the morning after significant rainfall... knowing that it was going to be muddy. It wasn't too challenging until we got to about the last 1.0-0.5 mile up the mountain. It was very slippery on the rocks towards the peak of the...More
It’s been quite a few years since I did this hike. I found it to not be as bad as what I remembered. It’s moderate. I recommend pacing yourself as it’s all uphill except for the short decent down to looking glass rock. Go early...More
Not to confused with looking glass falls, this was a great 6mi roundtrip moderate hike with a jaw dropping view of blue ridge but keep ahold of your loved ones folks, that subtle curved drop off at the top is no joke. The path starting...More
