Glassmine Falls is viewable from the Glassmine Falls Overlook at milepost 361.3 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. On my visit, which occurred during a thunderstorm the falls looked like a big wet rock way across the valley. I took a picture anyway and then left. As far as I can tell, the only reason you might want to stop at this overlook is the cell signal is really good on Verizon. You could possibly use this opportunity to check out my website for waterfalls nearby that might interest you as this one surely won’t. My advice is this, if you need to stretch your legs or you fancy big wet distant rocks, stop here. If you need to see a waterfall, keep driving. There are some very nice ones when you get to the intersection with NC80 only a few miles away.
