Today I would like to show you another waterfall that is found in our new home county of Transylvania. I love that we hardly have to travel to go find waterfalls and since waterfalls are one of my favorite things in nature you can imagine how happy I am to live in a county that boasts 250 waterfalls.
This one is a very easy one to access–hardly any hiking involved at all and the day we visited it was not all that crowded so we were able to spend some time getting some nice views. Looking Glass Falls is probably one of the most popular falls in the area mainly because of the easy access to view it. It gets its name from Looking Glass Rock which is a very popular rock climbing area. The falls are beautiful at any time of the year but when we visited it was especially beautiful due to recent rains. Of course you have to be very careful when you visit places like this. There have been reported deaths and many injuries of folks who just do not heed the warnings of staying in designated areas at the falls and that is something that is just irresponsible and tragic. There is no need for a wonderful visit to turn into a tragedy just because you wanted to get that really amazing selfie.Looking away from the falls is just as beautiful as looking at the falls themselves, don’t you think?
The falls are very easy to find as they are right off the side of the road on U.S. Highway 276, approximately 5.6 miles north of the intersection of 276, U.S. Highway 64, and NC Highway 280 in Brevard, North Carolina.
I also wanted to give a shout out to the North Carolina Blogger Network . I am happy to be a very small part of this group since my move to North Carolina.
