Looking Glass Falls is right off US 276 in the Pisgah National Forest above Brevard, North Carolina. You can enter "Looking Glass Falls" into your GPS or click on the map below to open Google Maps.
Park on the side of the road (arrive early as it gets crowded) and walk down the steps to the observation area. You can't miss the falls but All Trails has a map if you need one.
Looking Glass Falls drops 66 feet to the splash pool below. Expect to find lot's of people playing in the water in good weather. It is one of the most photographed waterfalls in North Carolina but there are still plenty of new shots to be had. Explore downstream and arrive for sunrise over the falls.
I first visited Looking Glass Falls during a photography workshop in the fall of 2018. Thanks to Mountains to Sea Workshops for getting me started chasing waterfalls. The picture on the left below was taken standing in the middle of the fast flowing river.
I went back in the fall of 2019 and the spray from the waterfall was so strong I couldn't keep the lens dry (picture below on the right).
