Jump Off Rock is a scenic overlook which provides a panoramic view of rolling pastures, the Blue Ridge and Pisgah mountain ranges. Jump Off Rock also holds an Indian legend that has been passed down for many, many years. More than 300 years ago, a young Cherokee Indian maiden received word that her young Indian chief had been killed in battle, so she climbed to the edge of the rock and jumped off. Indian legend has it that on moonlit nights you can see the ghost of the maiden on Jump Off Rock.
Jump Off Rock offers spectacular scenic mountain views and photographic opportunities during all four seasons of the year.
There are three hiking trials at Jump Off Rock, varying in length and difficulty. No admission charge.
