Looking Glass Rock/Looking Glass Falls

Search Brevard North Carolina

Looking Glass Rock is a monolithic piece of exposed Whitesides granite that rises from the valley floor in the midst of the Pisgah Ranger District. The name reflects the appearance of the mountain when water freezes on the exposed granite surface and reflects the sun like a mirror. Looking Glass Rock's sheer faces are popular rock climbing sites during certain times of the year. The rock face is closed off to climbing during Peregrine Falcon nesting seasons. The area is a prime nesting site for the threatened Peregrin Falcon in the southern Appalachians. Looking Glass Falls is a beautiful 60 foot high waterfall that can be seen from US 276. Steps lead down to Looking Glass Creek where you can feel the mist from the falls.
