Chimney Rock Park

Me and my family will be traveling here next month and I was wondering how the trails are for small children. I have a 6yr old and we were wondering if there was a way to get to the top of the "rock" without having to drag her up all the stairs. Thanks for any info.

The park has an elevator but it has been out of service for several months. There is no other way to the top of the rock except to climb roughly 500 steep steps!
