You've Reached the Top
When you get to this point along the Skyline trail you can exclaim, “I have reached the highest point in Chimney Rock!” At an elevation of 2,480 feet, Exclamation Point is the pinnacle of the Park. It exceeds Chimney Rock’s elevation by 200 feet. Standing here, you can feel proud and justifiably weary because you have just driven and hiked over 1,400 vertical feet from the entrance to the Park, which you can see way, way down in the valley. Don’t worry — it’s all downhill from here. Whew!
