The Chimney Rock Trail was very nicely marked. It wasn’t too busy and the views were wonderful. We had a great afternoon of hiking. more »
Very nice hiking area. Trails with different degrees of difficulty - easy, moderate, hard. Serene environment. Cunningham falls is in the park. Whole family can enjoy. Something for everyone.
It may be less than 2 miles to the falls but the trail is challenging due to the terrain. If there hasn't been a lot of rain, the falls are kind of a trickle. Lots of trails with a nice boardwalk/deck for viewing the falls. Beautiful information center that is air-conditioned with facilities.
