Featured in films such as "The Last of the Mohicans," Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park is full of beautiful attractions, including the 535-year-old Chimney Rock, for which the park is named. Before the granite monolith was acquired by the state of North Carolina in 2007, the Morse family privately owned Chimney Rock for more than 100 years. The park also is home to Devil's Head balancing rock and Hickory Nut Falls. Hike the various park trails designed for varying skill levels, play at one of the 12 Great Woodland Discovery zones, or, if you're feeling more adventurous, go rock climbing for the day.

  • If I remember $17 a person to go in the park. But definitely worth it. We wish we had more time to do everything in the park but we only got to do the main big rock there. But it’s an amazing view. Definitely something to do for all ages. Riding in a bus up a mountain was a bit scary but definitely worth the adventure. Worth recommend
  • What a great place for a work out!! We took the stairs and definitely got our exercise for the day! So many places to walk and hike! Great spots to stop and enjoy the view. A really cute gift shop off the elevator where you can also buy water. (You will need it!) Loved our experience!! What a cute area in town as well!
