This hike takes you to the top of John Rock, a granite dome rising above the Pisgah National Forest. From John Rock you can see its more popular “big brother” Looking Glass Rock and mountains beyond. Begin at an informative wildlife center and interesting fish hatchery, following the Davidson River. Turn up at a tributary, then begin an unbroken ascent to John Rock’s naked top and a worthwhile panorama.
