This hike leads to one of the area’s most notable peaks—Looking Glass Rock. Here, you can rise to a granite grandstand rising above the Davidson River valley, where vistas of the Blue Ridge await. A first-rate but busy path switchbacks from the river through woods, passing occasional rock slabs before opening onto a colossal stone slab availing panoramas of the Blue Ridge rising in the distance as well as greater Davidson River valley stretching out below.
