Looking Glass Rock

View of Looking Glass Rock

Blue Ridge Parkway, NC


Looking Glass Rock is a favorite of rock climbers in the North Carolina area.  It is actually located in Pisgah National Forest, however it is best viewed and photographed from Blue Ridge Parkway.  It is easily viewed from the Blue Ridge Parkway by a paved parking lot/pullover. After a rain the doom glimmers in the sunshine.
