Unbelievably crowded in Pisgah. It used to be that other than Looking Glass Falls, Pisgah was empty. No more. A nice hike with an outstanding view of Looking Glass Rock.
Fun hike late in the day
Fun trail to the top; no crowds; beautiful landscape. It was a great start to a 40 mile hike.
OK, this seems silly ... but I visited this place back when I lived in South Carolina. Ah, the nostalgia :)
Nice easy trail with views therefore can be crowded. Don't get out on the edge if its wet.
Nice easy trail with great views of looking glass from the summit.
I finally climbed this peak after avoiding it for one reason or another the past three years. It's a great mountain! If you're overnighting, there are many great campsites along the creeks or way up in the cove hardwood forests. The place is like a gigantic sponge, so there is no end of reliable water sources all around. Abundant wildlife, too.
The views from the cliff face of John Rock are spectacular. Best vantage point I've found for views of the western side of Looking Glass Rock.
