Looking Glass Falls in Brevard NC

August 1, 2014 by Rick Morris

Looking Glass Falls is a plunge type water fall located in Transylvania County near Brevard NC within the Pisgah National Forest of the Southern Appalachian Mountains.  It is part of Looking Glass Creek.  The falls are about 60 feet high and present one of the more spectacular waterfalls in the Brevard area.  It is a must see.  Looking Glass Falls entail one drop.

The falls sometimes freeze over during the winter, presenting a mirror - or "looking glass" due to the sun's reflection.  Here is an image of Looking Glass Falls during winter...

Visiting Looking Glass Falls - How to Get There 

You can visit Looking Glass Falls by taking Highway 276 from Brevard's Highway 64 and Highway 280 and going for about 5 and 1/2 miles.  Access is very simple and even those in wheel chairs, or otherwise handicapped can view with ease.  You simply pull to the edge of the road; there are a number of parking spots.  For those so inclined, a path leads to the bottom of the falls where there is a swimming area.  It's not more than three feet deep, but it offers free relief from the heat during July or August, when the sun warms the area.

A word of warning: don't be the next fool that Brevard Fire Department has to pluck from the falls.  About one person every couple years ends his vacation (and life) at Looking Glass Falls.  Several are injured each year.  Do not try to climb the falls.  Do not walk above the falls.  Do not jump into the pool below.  Be smart.  Plenty of non-locals come here every year and think they can safely maneuver the falls and end up becoming a floater in the pool below, ruining the day for many and probably creating mental anguish for children who see your dumb ass go splat.
