This is a must see view. Very short walk to lookout from parking lot. There are 3 little trails that circle around side of mountain - not much on trails but if your just trying to get some steps in go ahead and walk them.

Jump Off Rock has great views of neighboring statès. The best view is the view of NC. There are walking trails for those of you who like some more adventure.

Had an unbelievable view! So quiet up there, if you get a chance this is a must see, just be careful if you walk one of the trails the rocks get slippery
