Great views with some very cool hikes. The stairs to get to top were a bit much but all the additional trails it was good.

I’d always wanted to go to the top of Chimney Rock, so I finally did! My 73 year old mom made it, too! Those steps though! We took lots of breaks. Mom was disappointed that the flag wasn’t raised, but other than that it was great! Make sure you have good shoes and take a bottle of water even if you think you won’t need it.

The view at the top is worth each step climbed. ( 500 steps each way ). It is a beautiful view overlooking quaint Chimney Rock Village. I will definitely climb to the top again.

Great hike with the family and the dog. Beautiful waterfall. Unique history. Nothing too fancy and not too crowded.

Well worth the climb the views are breathtaking. We also hiked the path to the falls. Going early in the day during off season we saw few people which made it quiet with only the sound of the falls echoing through the trees.
