You have to climb Looking Glass Rock and enjoy the majestic view!

My favorite part of Pisgah so far is Looking Glass Rock. The hike is hefty in places, but very worth it. The view is incredible! If you have young children, there is no railing, so be very careful.

Looking Glass Rock is Phenomenal
by: Bret James Stewart

Thank you, Jenny. You are absolutely correct about Looking Glass Rock. It is definitely one of the best view trails in the area, with great views of nearby John Rock and the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is a monadnock, and is quite iconic. Other than the Mount Pisgah Trail with its namesake mountain, I would say Looking Glass is the best known mountain in the District, and I think it is the most visually recognizable due to its unusual and memorable shape.
