Annual Passholder Fall Sunrise Breakfast Featuring a Historical Overview from Todd Morse

Time: Gate opens at 6:15am for 7:30 am sunrise.
Cost: $6 per passholder; $4 per Rockin' Discovery Kid; Free for kids 4 and under

There’s nothing more magical than seeing a sunrise over Lake Lure and the Hickory Nut Gorge, so we’re opening the Park early for our Annual Passholders. Join former owner and manager, Todd Morse, who recently published “For the Love of Chimney Rock,” for a historical overview of the Park and indulge in a house-made breakfast prepared by the Old Rock Cafe as the sun rises.  You’ll be treated to some amazing views, so be sure to bring your camera!

Afterward, guests are welcome to head out on the trails and enjoy early access to the Park before the gates open to the public.

Advance registration is required. To RSVP, please register below. Check out area accommodations if you plan to stay overnight. Guests interested in becoming an annual passholder, please click here.
