A fanciful Native legend still entertains visitors at Blowing Rock, an immense cliff standing some 4000 feet above John's River Gorge. One of a handful of attractions in Watauga and Caldwell counties, this Blue Ridge Mountain scenic overlook has entertained visitors since 1933. A self-guided nature trail leads to an observation tower, picnic area, gardens and waterfall, and the actual Blowing Rock.
