Heading back east from Highlands, NC, we stopped at Looking Glass Falls. It had recently rained and the falls were roaring. Short paved walk to a great viewpoint, very picturesque falls. Definitely worth a stop.

Hit Davidson River Campground trail and Black Mountain before you get close to the waterfall or Sliding Rock. Tons of fun! Black mountain trail is hard to find cause the parking area is kind of hidden...Once you enter the forest go past Davidson River Campground and you'll see a ranger office on the right..turn in to the right and the trail begins at the back of the parking lot...You'd otherwise never know it was there. This trail is straight up but the downhill comes around the mountain with water drainage berms built all the way down making great jumps! Be careful! Super fast downhill and a wipeout could send you to your death...really! Thats a long way down in some areas!
