Jump Off Rock
Spectacular, panoramic views of the Blue Ridge and Pisgah Mountain range and is a favorite site for beautiful, romantic sunsets. Legend says that over 300 years ago a young Cherokee Indian Chief fell in love with a fair Indian maiden. They often met on top of the rock ledge (at Jump Off Rock) overlooking the valley below. When the young Chief was called to war, the maiden promised him that she would wait for his return from they favorite rock ledge. When the maiden received word that her young Indian Chief had been killed in battle, she climbed to the edge of the rock and jumped off, tribal hunters found her broken body below. Indian legend has it that on moonlit nights you can see the ghost of the maiden on Jump Off Rock.
