Woodland Walk at Chimney Rock Park NC
Woodland Walk

Kids and Kids-at-heart Love the Great Woodland Adventure

Woodland creatures take the spotlight at 12 Discovery Stations along this easy .6-mile winding trail. Grady the Groundhog, the Park’s Animal Ambassador, illustrates how his forest friends live, including chipmunks, frogs, owls and butterflies. Try to jump as far as a spider, spot the salamanders or name the birds of prey soaring above. Larger-than-life wood and metal sculptures by local crafters and artists bring the trail to life. Grady’s Animal Discovery Den, home to live critters, is located next to the trailhead.
