HikingGreat!Rocky

We saw Looking Glass from the Blue Ridge Parkway and knew that was a must climb. We had a Rattlesnake cross the trail right at the start. We let him pass and continued up , and up. The views at the top are worth the climb.

Hiking

A great trail especially if you are a photographer. There are vistas everywhere. Even got to see some Falcons flying today. Some of the side trails are closed to protect their nesting areas, please respect that. This would be a great leaf season hike also.

Walking

We got here early in the morning and thought we had parked in the wrong spot - there wasn't any signage and there was tons of non-trespassing signs // government area, but if you stay on the gravel, you should be fine! Easy enough travel with going up there and going down on the way back.

Nice waterfall but the direction this app send us to is way off so we have to adapt to do what we can do.

HikingGreat!Rocky

Amazing payoff for the short hike. Gets challenging right before the top, but it's pretty easy most of the way. Make sure you take that trail to the right shown on your nap when you get to the top. That's the actual summit and then you feel like you're on top of the world up there.

Overall not a bad hike, a little muddy but that’s what we expected we are hiking near a mountain stream and a waterfall. Definitely gonna come back and set my hammock up one of these times, beautiful area.

One of the best payoffs for the effort you'll find anywhere. Make sure you don't stop when you get to what you think is the top. There's a side trail to the right that leads you to the summit.

Love the terrain, beautiful view most of the hike. Only downfall is your next to the parkway the whole time. So if you are looking for quietness this is not the trail

The last mile is really steep up to Water Rock Knob but worth it! The trail head is across the parkway from Fork Ridge Overlook. Not easy to spot from road.

Trail conditions were well, little muddy Didn’t give 5 stars because it could be better marked, there’s a lot of off trails that could easily confuse someone with the real trail

Like another hiker said, not difficult but not easy either. Trail was not crowded at all and the views were beautiful. No bugs and well maintained.

Great hike. Great views. Not too long. Steep and rocky at the top. Takes about 2 hours at a reasonable pace.
