Blowing Rock (land feature)
The prevailing wind blows through the gorge toward Blowing Rock. There, at the end of the gorge, the wind's path of least resistance is up the steep slopes surmounted by the outcropping, resulting in a nearly vertical and typically strong wind.
Blowing Rock is private property; a fee for access is payable at the adjacent souvenir shop.
The 2008 feature film Goodbye Solo features Blowing Rock in its concluding scene.
