Some nice little holes and perhaps the best views especially at sunset in all of Hendersonville. A must see if visiting the area.

It was a clear day when we drove to Jump Rock and we were able to see four states from this promontory. Thankfully the wind was blowing and had blown the recent haze away. It is worth the drive up the mountain.

Winding drive to the park but well worth it. Spectacular views from the stone scenic area. If you're in Hendersonville, NC, take the short trip up on a clear day, you won't be disappointed.

You don't have to hike the trails, you're parking, literally 150' from the rock and there are benches that allow you to extend your stay. Depending on when you go, you might consider a jacket, it gets very breezy up there... More
