One of NC's newest state parks, Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park brings the best of the mountains together in one place with a list of things to do as infinite as the views. A 26-story elevator inside the mountain or a network of stairs & boardwalks takes you to 315' Chimney Rock & amazing 75-mile views of Hickory Nut Gorge, Lake Lure & the Carolina Piedmont. With unique hiking trails suitable for all ages & abilities, the Park has something for everyone from the family-friendly Great Woodland Adventure trail to the more adventurous Four Seasons trail which climbs more than 400'. Be sure to hike the Hickory Nut Falls trail---the reward is the 404-foot waterfall, one of the highest in the East. Also offered are guided rock climbing lessons for beginners to advanced climbers. The Old Rock Cafe & Sky Lounge Deli offer tasty sandwiches & snacks to get you fueled up for your hike. The Park offers group discounts and is pet friendly.
