Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park

  • 431 Main St
  • Chimney Rock, NC 28720

Chimney Rock brings the best of the mountains together in one place. Experience a thrill of accomplishment by hiking our 499-step Outcroppings trail to the 315-foot Chimney Rock, where you'll see amazing 75-mile views of Hickory Nut Gorge, Lake Lure and the Carolina Piedmont. Along the way, be sure to visit the newly reopened Grotto, Subway and Pulpit Rock, which offer incredible views you won’t see anywhere else in the Park.
With several unique hiking trails, the park has something for everyone, from the family-friendly Great Woodland Adventure Trail to the adventurous Four Seasons Trail which climbs more than 400 feet. Experience panoramic views of the Hickory Nut Gorge at Exclamation Point, the highest point in the Park at 2,480 feet. Be sure to hike the Hickory Nut Falls trail -- the reward is the 404-foot falls, one of the highest in the East.
The Old Rock Café and the Sky Lounge Deli offer tasty sandwiches and snacks to get you fueled up for your hike. The Park offers group discounts and is pet friendly.
