get off the parkway at Linville Falls, Hwy 221, go about a mile or so and bear left on route 183. Kistler Memorial Highway and the Linville Gorge Wilderness Area entrance is just a few hundred yards down on the right. at the top of the first rise take the left fork to the overlook to the gorge. i would highly recommend continuing on from there on Kistler Mem. Hwy but, when you reach the other end you'll have to use the gps to get back to the parkway or retrace your route.
