Wiseman's View

Categories Hiking Outdoor Attractions Parks And Forests
Town Linville Falls

For one of the most spectacular views in the North Carolina mountains, head to Wiseman's View on the western side of Linville Gorge (often called the "Grand Canyon of Eastern America"). Find two stone observation areas perched on the cliff at about 3,400 feet elevation. About 1,500 feet below you is the Linville River and directly across the deepest gorge in the eastern USA are the dramatic peaks of Hawksbill (left in photo above) and Table Rock (right) mountains.
