Well, if any of those images resonate with you, then now is the perfect time for you to go visit Chimney Rock Park. Why is a visit to the park any better now than any other time you ask? Well, here’s why….under normal, everyday circumstances, Chimney Rock Park is like every other attraction out there…it’s BUSY. But, this Autumn (and this Autumn only), the elevator that is normally in service to lift all those folks that cannot or do not want to hike up to the rock, is being refurbished and will not be in service throughout the autumn color season.What does that mean for those of you who are able to hike moderate or more strenuous trails? A gorgeous landscape, a nearly perfect experience and because of the improvements being done at this time the rates to get into the park have been reduced also.
If you want to add to your experience the park has some classes also. Survival skills workshops, guided nature hikes, crafts demonstrations and music programs are among some of the events. You can even register for some of their classes such as photography and birding. They even have rock climbing classes. Could you have guessed that one? All events are listed on the website at this page http://www.chimneyrockpark.com/events/month_view.php?monthYear=2011&month=10&category=8&catYear=2011
Seasonal hours: Open daily from 8:30am to 7pm with the Ticket Plaza and front entrance gate closing at 5:30pm; hours change in November
