It does have a great view, with a very short trail. There are many places in the area with great views that do not cost $6 to see. If you are into souvenirs there are two places to spend your money.

Scenic views and of course the legendary Blowing Rock.. Two gift shops for kids to annoy parents. All gifts extremely overpriced. Go to Grandfather Mountain instead.

This is a neat place to visit. There is a loop trail that is very easy to walk and the history of the rock is interesting. There are some beautiful flowers, an interesting display of old pictures, and the observation deck offers amazing mountain views....More
