Annual Passholder Fall Sunrise Breakfast
Time: Gate opens at 6:15am for 7:30am sunrise

There’s really nothing like watching the sun rise over Lake Lure and the Hickory Nut Gorge, so we’re opening up early just for our Annual Passholders. We’ll also serve up a yummy breakfast and hot coffee prepared by Chef Randall Spencer of Old Rock Cafe. Afterwards, guests are welcome to head out on the trails and take some photos of the waterfall or the views from Peregrine’s Point.

Naturalist Niche: Nature at Night
Time: 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Cost: $23 Adult, $8 Annual Passholder, $13 Youth (ages 5-15), $6 Rockin’ Discovery Passholder; Advance registration required

After the sun goes down, the fun begins! From hoots to howls you never know what you’ll hear or see during one of our nighttime naturalist programs. The guided night hike and owl prowl will keep the entire family intrigued during this non-scary fall adventure. All activities are considered easy –to- moderate so the entire family can attend.

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.

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