“Best views of the area”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

A quick, winding drive up the mountain is so worth it to take in the amazing views of the area. There are no crowds, a few small trails and a 360 degree view, which is breathtaking. Not to mention, the local folklore of the place, which just adds to the experience - legend has it that a young Cherokee Indian maiden jumped to her death from Jump Off Rock, after receiving word that her love had died in battle.

“Beautiful View”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Great views- free. Very refreshing. You see some very beautiful homes on the way up there. Wouldn't go in bad weather, road very winding.

“Beautiful Anytime but Fall is Breathtaking!”
Reviewed 26 September 2013 via mobile

The park is so well kept, so peaceful and quiet. The view is of the mountains is fabulous! We visit this place often, and take ALL of our friends from out of town here! The fall is our favorite time of year with the colors putting on a show for all to see for miles! And...... Many many years ago, this is where I got my first kiss from my husband! This is a special place!

“Great scenic overlook in Laurel Park”

Drive straight up along 5th Ave (Laurel Park Hwy) to the end and you will be treated with an amazing overlook and some nice little hiking trails. Perfect for a family outing or a romantic picnic!

“Good view if you're willing to drive”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

Beautiful view of the Blue Ridge and Pisgah mountain ranges. From Hendersonville "town area" it's about 20 minutes to get up to the rock. It's pretty though, and there are a few nice, short, loop trails you can hike. It can be very steep on the trails so maybe not for kids or elders. Where the right kind of shoes.
