Breathtaking views. Very well maintained and friendly staff. Directions/signs aren't obvious to first time visitors but the staff in the office found at the entrance are helpful.

First time here, and it was well worth it! The $15 per person is a bit on the pricey side, but after taking the elevator up and down due to weather, it was well worth it. The views are amazing!

This is a must see park here in NC. The views are fantastic and just loved the mountains, the trees, and Chimney Rock Village. We have been here twice now in the past 3 weeks, and will come back again. It's a very relaxing area even though you do need to do some walking to get to the top, but it's well worth it.
The park is quaint and family friendly. The hike to the top isn't too hard (my 3 year old made it without complaining). I believe there's an elevator as well, but that wasn't working when we were there. If you have time, take the trail to the waterfall. We went a day after it rained and the water was coming down pretty good.

Climb to the top for a great view. Walk around to an epic waterfall featured in the movie Last of the Mohicans. And walk through some gorgeous trails.
