About Chimney Rock

Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park offers the best of the Blue Ridge Mountains in one place. Marvel at spectacular 75-mile views of Lake Lure and the Blue Ridge Foothills or let your cares fade away in the cool mist of 404-foot Hickory Nut Falls, featured in The Last of the Mohicans. It’s time to reconnect with nature. Our ancient geological features, unique hiking trails, nature programs and rock climbing attract visitors from around the world. Chimney Rock has been recognized as one of the Southeast’s most iconic and popular travel destinations for more than 100 years. It was recently voted "Favorite State Park" by readers of Blue Ridge Country magazine. We’re only 45 minutes from Asheville and less than 2 hours west of Charlotte, NC.
