The Skyline Trail once a favorite hike of many Park visitors closed in 2008 for assessment and repair. After much thought and revamping North Carolina State Parks created a longer hike winding through the ridgeline forest on top of Chimney Rock Mountain. This primarily rolling trail takes guests through beautiful woodland landscapes with surprising occasions for jaw-dropping views. Don’t miss this guided hike by a local naturalist who began his career documenting the species on the original trail and is now exploring the new.
