Chimney Rock State Park
- Open Now
Cool sites to be seen. Lots of people everywhere though (as to be expected with a popular tourist spot). If you don't want any hold up whilst on the trails and for a bit of quiet whilst at the various view points then go early or maybe late as you can visit the park for free the next day if you enter after 4pm I believe.
Absolutely beautiful . All the trails and hiking you can handle lol. Bring water and a camera . Very cool scenery everywhere you look. Lake Lure is also a site to see we will be back. Alot of cool shops and dinning yo check out . Family friendly and something to do for everyone. Also some cool bed and breakfast that we will also check out too!
What an awesome day. I would definitely recommend this to hikers who love the outdoors and stairs. Beautiful views and nice waterfalls. Down town is also beautiful with lots of shops.
Take the elevator to the top and explore the whole area around it. Hike the Falls Trail and see the falls. Fun place to spend the day. We did not get to enjoy the town because of Covid closures.
Beautiful park. You take about a 7 minute ride on a curvy road to get to the park gate and pay admission. Then you park about 300 yards past tha. You can either take a trail to the rock or take a shuttle. Once there you can either walk a trail to top or take an elevator. We took the elevator.
