Get a New Perspective from Our Heights
For millions of years, the sheer cliffs and rock wall faces of Chimney Rock have stood high over this beautiful gorge. For more than a hundred years, they've been calling visitors from around the world. Now, they’re calling for a more personal, up-close relationship with you.
If you’ve ever wanted to change your vantage point on the world, here’s your chance. Whether you’re age 6 or 60, whether you’ve never rock climbed or you’re an old hand at it, we’ve got a new experience for you.
Kids and families can get a taste of rock climbing at the Springtime Kids’ Climb on March 29, 11am-3pm. Kids (ages 7-15) climb for half price (only $10) with 20-minute “tasters” on Vista Rock, weather permitting. Beginners welcome, no signup necessary.
With our exclusive rock climbing partners, Fox Mountain Guides, you can schedule a climb in Chimney Rock that is suited to your abilities and see the Park from a whole new perspective. Whether you go solo, with your family and friends or with an entire group, you're sure to enjoy rock climbing on our mountain, one of the few places in North Carolina that offers drive-up climbing, allowing guest access to climbs that are mere steps from the parking lot.
