Overview

Chimney Rock Park is an American heritage site and a popular destination for nature-lovers, who may recognize some of the landscape from scenes in the movie The Last of the Mohicans (1992). This 1000 acre park with its hiking trails, magnificent hill-top views and a 404-foot (123-meter) waterfall makes any trip an unforgettable experience. Some of the finest attractions are the 315 foot Chimney Hill with its 75-mile (121-kilometer) panoramic view, the Hickory Nut Falls, the Opera Box and the several caves. The top of Chimney Rock itself is accessible by stairways and bridges, as well as a 26-story elevator that was built directly inside the mountain. The admission fees are USD14 for adults, USD6 for children (6-15 years) and children under 6 years are admitted at no charge. There are also discounts for groups of 20 or more; see website for more information.
