Chimney Rock State Park, Chimney Rock

4.4
#1 of 55 in Trails in North Carolina
Featured in films such as "The Last of the Mohicans," Chimney Rock State Park is full of beautiful attractions, including the 535-year-old Chimney Rock, for which the park is named. Before the granite monolith was acquired by the state of North Carolina in 2007, the Morse family privately owned Chimney Rock for more than 100 years. The park also is home to Devil's Head balancing rock and Hickory Nut Falls. Hike the various park trails designed for varying skill levels, play at one of the 12 Great Woodland Discovery zones, or, if you're feeling more adventurous, go rock climbing for the day.
