Looking Glass Waterfalls is a popular waterfall located on US 276 near Brevard, North Carolina. The waterfall is inside Pisgah National Forest and is 60 foot long. It is beautiful and easily accessible from an overlook on the road. You can also walk to the base of the falls. To get to Looking Glass Falls, take U.S. 276 North from Brevard for about nine miles or take U.S. 276 South from the Blue Ridge Parkway for about 10 miles. U.S. 276 is known as Forest Heritage Scenic Byway and goes through Pisgah National Forest and is very scenic specially during Fall. The very fact that you don’t need to walk or hike to view the waterfall is a reason to see this lovely fall. So be sure to check it out Looking Glass Falls if you are in Brevard, Asheville, Hendorsonville or other nearby places.
