Looking Glass Falls

Looking Glass Falls is a quick stop off of Highway 276. This 60 foot waterfall offers a wading pool at the base, which is a great spot to cool off in the warmer months.

This is one of the most popular and scenic waterfalls in the area. If you've come to visit it on a warmer day, remember to pack your bathing suit. This magnificent 60 foot waterfall has a pool at it's base that you can wade, swim, and cool off in. Remember to be careful as the rocks under the falls are slick, so be careful if you enter the pool.

From the parking area, you can head down the stairs and cross the railing for different perspectives of the falls. For info on getting the best photos of the falls, check out this adventure.

Looking Glass Falls

Easy walk down to the falls. The falls are beautiful and stunning in the winter when there is ice .

Beautiful Falls.

Not really a hike. You just hop out of your car and walk down some steps. The Falls are pretty but very crowded

Crowded in summer

The waterfall is relatively close to the entrance of the forest, so in mid-May it was teaming with swimmers and site seers. Beautiful waterfall, but hard to get a picture without lots of people in it.
