Milepost: 260.3 | County: Ashe | Acres: 63 | Hiking: Yes, picnic site and trail

This serene, forested property provides long-range views of the foothills below the Blue Ridge escarpment. CTNC acquired the Jumpinoff Rock property in 2001 and conveyed it to the National Park Service in 2005.

Directions: Located at milepost 260.3 is a parking area with picnic tables and an easy 0.5 mile trail.

“Development of this land would have ruined the view visitors experience from the Jumpinoff Rock Overlook.”
