Chimney Rock Park

If mother nature created a theme park, it would look like this, for more than 100 years, the magic and wonder of this magnificent natural preserve has been an authentic and simple joy. With sweeping 75-mile views of Hickory Nut Gorge and Lake Lure from its summit, standing atop the chimney is a jaw-dropping experience.


Our heights-a 404-foot waterfall and vertical challenges along miles of trails and stairs-have always been uplifting. Come explore with us, meet our naturalists and partake in events and activities designed to engage, inspire and enlighten you. Stop life’s crazy roller coaster and let us reintroduce you to mother nature. Just 40 minutes from Asheville along Drovers Road Scenic Byway (US74A). Open daily. Pet friendly.
