Chestoa View is another scenic overlook located at Milepost 320 on Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina. The elevation is 4090′. It has one of the best views on the Parkway. The name Chestoa is derived form the Cherokee word for rabbit. From the parking area, it’s a short (1/3 mile) walk to the rock-walled viewing area. This overlook offers a scenic view of Table Rock and Linville Gorge. There is an easy 30 minute loop trail (0.6 miles) called Chestoa View Trail and offers some good views. Several picnic tables are located in the parking area.
