Blue Ridge Parkway Looking Glass Rock Poster
Rising to 3,969 feet, Looking Glass Rock is comprised of exposed Whiteside granite that was formed approximately 390 million years ago. Geologists refer to it as a “pluton,” a big ball of granitic rock that would have become a volcano had it not cooled before it reached the earth’s surface. The name “Looking Glass” is derived from its appearance when rainwater freezes on its surface and reflects the sun like a mirror. Check out this incredible view from the Looking Glass Rock Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway milepost 417.
