This is a great place to stop. The view is amazing and looks like it is painting. It does not look real (but it is). We did not have enough time to venture on some of the hiking trails, but would love to go back...More

With friends visiting from Nashville, we brought them here for the beautiful views of The Smokies. While there a wedding was taking place....awfully cold day for the bride, but what a great backdrop for the event.

It was a LONG and windy road up, but I’m glad I did it. Always great to see the local sites and the road up was very beautiful

Absolutely beautiful! The temperature was 15* and according to the weather report, felt like 1*, so we couldn't stay long. The mountains were covered in snow and it was one of the most beautiful sights I've ever seen.

We always go to Jump Off Rock for an amazing sunset. Bring a little happy hour snack and enjoy the view as the sun sets over the mountain range.

That is for the viewer to judge. I got to go for sunset and see the blue of the blueridge but the sunset was so beautiful also.
