Jump Off Rock – is a scenic overlook, which provides a beautiful panoramic view of rolling pastures, the foothills and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Jump Off Rock also holds an Indian legend that has been passed down for many, many years. Over 300 years ago a young Cherokee Indian maiden received word that her young Indian Chief had been killed in battle, so she climbed to the edge of the rock and jumped off. Indian legend has it that on moonlit nights you can see the ghost of the maiden on Jump Off Rock. Jump Off is located about 4.5 miles from The Melange; just continue on Fifth Avenue West which becomes Laurel Park Highway as you go up the mountain until you reach the top. The park is open daily, sunrise to sunset. No admission charge.
