Looking Glass Rock
The name reflects the appearance of the mountain when water freezes on the exposed granite surface and reflects the sun like a mirror.

Looking Glass Rock is a monolithic piece of exposed Whitesides granite that rises from the valley floor in the midst of the Pisgah Ranger District. Approximatelyy 390-400 million years ago, the collision of continental plates caused some earlier sedimentary rocks to melt due to great pressures within the earth, forming large magma bodies which solidified into rocks (Whitesides granite) that were much harder than later rocks which overlay the magma. Looking Glass Rock is the exposed magma body after a lot of erosion.

Trails lead from FR 475 and FR 475-B to the top of Looking Glass Rock.

Looking Glass Rock's sheer faces are popular rock climbing sites during certain times of the year. The rock face is closed off to climbing during Peregrine Falcon nesting seasons. The area is a prime nesting site for the threatened Peregrine Falcon in the southern Appalachians.

Pisgah Fish Hatchery
First the site of a logging community, then a Civilian Conservation Corps camp during the Great Depression and now a hatchery operated by the NC Wildlife Resources Commission that raises thousands of trout for Western North Carolina streams.

Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education

The Center's theme is "Mountain Streams-Where Water and Life Begin". The facility includes an interpretive trail with live and interactive exhibits, a WILD education site, an outdoor classroom, an amphitheatre, raceway (fish) exhibits, a WILD Store Gift Shop and vending services. One of the most important uses of the facility is to conduct statewide environmental education programs for educators and youth leaders.

Looking Glass Rock is located in the Pisgah National Forest, north of the town of Brevard, North Carolina. It's not far into the state which makes it a popular place for visitors coming up from the south. It's only a few hours from Atlanta, and less than an hour south of Asheville.

Looking Glass Rock offers routes on premier North Carolina granite domes, slabs, and walls on its miles of climbable faces. There are routes here to challenge everyone from beginner to expert with several faces over 500 feet high. While some cracks found here are reminiscent of Yosemite, the characteristic feature of Looking Glass Rock is the "eyebrow (link - FAQ) ". These inverted crescents in the rock are generally rounded on top, undercut by a crevice that may provide hand/foot holds or a solid gear placement. They are just as likely to be pretty much useless. Many climbs have a moderate to high degree of slab climbing in them. The 3 mile long rock is more or less teardrop shaped, with climbing on the North, South, and Western exposures.
