Just a quick hop up the mountain from Hendersonville, Jump Off Rock offers the best panoramic views of the mountains. There are a few quick, easy hikes from the view point and several benches and grassy areas for a picnic. Be sure to catch a sunset there, if you can time it right!

The views are AMAZING! The trails are short and not too challenging. But you aren't going to hike, go for the views.

We're not much for these types of attractions. However, we are local residents and decided to give it a go. Wow! You won't be disappointed either. There are wonderful views towards the west and plenty of space for the whole family
