Chestoa View Overlook - Search Nearby - Added by Merritt McKinney

The hike to Chestoa View Overlook is more of a stroll than a hike. Located right off the Blue Ridge Parkway, this overlook offers one of the best and most accessible views of Linville Gorge.

Chestoa View Overlook is an extremely short hike located down a pull-off at milepost 320 of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Park your vehicle in a designated spot then intercept the trail to the left of the lot. The trail will slowly descend down into a stone overlook. The panoramic view showcases the beautiful Linville Gorge as well as Grandfather Mountain and Table Rock.

The hike from parking lot to overlook can be done in approximately 3-5 minutes. The entire trail is paved or lined with stones with a few amount of stairs. If passing by, Chestoa View Overlook is a must-stop!
