Just 25 miles southeast of Asheville, NC, the Park is nestled in Hickory Nut Gorge between the towns of Lake Lure and Bat Cave.Chimney Rock, the 535-million-year-old monolith for which the Park is named, is considered one of the most iconic sites in North Carolina. From its top, you’ll soak in the 75-mile panoramic views. The popular Hickory Nut Falls trail takes you out to the bottom of our 404-foot waterfall, the second highest of its kind east of the Mississippi River and featured in the movie The Last of the Mohicans.
