Naturalist Niche: Old Growth Frolic

Time: 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Cost: $23 Adult, $8 Annual Passholder; Advance registration required

Old-growth stands can be found in rare pockets throughout the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains. One of those small areas is right here in Chimney Rock State Park. This moderate hike rambles through an area typically not open to the public in order to introduce participants to characteristics of old growth forests and native trees. This hike is considered moderate.

We  love our visitor’s furry friends, but we do understand that some hike participants may consider animals a distraction on the trail. Pets are not allowed on Naturalist Niche hikes because of this.Hikes are geared for adults.

Advance registration is required. Please use the link below to purchase your tickets. Cost includes Park admission for the day.
