If you want to take a scenic drive from our cabins or from Bryson City through Cherokee towards Maggie Valley and the destination have spectacular panoramic views, look no further than Waterrock Knob. The Waterrock Visitor Center is roughly 45 minutes away from Bryson City along the Blue Ridge Parkway. You will find a very large parking lot to take in panoramic views of Cherokee as well as Maggie Valley and the Plott Balsam Mountain Ranges. You can also take a steep but short trail to the summit for even better views. If your desire is to take in a sunrise or sunset this is certainly one of the better places to do so in the area that is easily accessible.
