We recently enjoyed a visit here with friends. We visited Looking Glass Falls and did some hiking as well. The area is very scenic and is definitely worth a visit.

Amazing drive through the area better colors than we saw in the Smokey Mountains with a lot less traffic. Windy roads up and down

The forest is gorgeous, I wish everybody would not leave any trash behind. No wonder they are considering limiting the public's access. Seriously campers, how wonderful to have a place to go, so appreciate it, clean up after yourselves, pigs!
Amazing view. Very clean and the scenery was breath taking. Clean fresh air and the water current was so soothing to listen too as you're walking or running.
