Looking Glass Rock, from the Blue Ridge Parkway. 

A very popular climbing destination, this granite dome also has a great camping spot, right on its crown. The trail begins just off of Rt. 276 near the Davidson River Campground, in the Pisgah National Forest. The trail to the top is short but very steep. Be sure to visit the Cradle of Forestry, just four miles from the trail head. The Cradle of Forestry is a museum that is dedicated to the first forestry school that was established in the U.S..
