Stack Rock Overlook

Stack Rock Overlook is found along a very popular stretch of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Located at mile 304.6, it is between the Grandfather Mountain entrance to the BRP and the Linn Cove Viaduct. A short trail (approx. 1/2 mile) leads to enormous boulders (which are so large they're hard to photograph) which the trail climbs around. Above is a small cascade found near the rock formations.

The trail is actually part of the Tanawha Trail that leads from the Beacon Heights Overlook to Price Lake 13.5 miles away. When entering the woods from the parking area at Stack Rock Overlook, turn left on the Tanawha Trail.
