Chimney Rock NC Attractions
Chimney Rock State Park Standing atop the Chimney Rock, a 500 million-year-old giant granite monolith overlooking Hickory Nut Gorge, visitors are awed by the breathtaking view that spreads 1200 vertical feet beneath them and 75 miles across the Carolinas. The state-owned park, located in Chimney Rock North Carolina, encompasses 1,000 acres, including the Chimney itself and Hickory Nut Falls and the beautiful Hickory Nut Falls.  Chimney Rock Park is a "must see" for  any trip to the mountains. 
Courtesy of The Nature Conservancy/Paul Hudy Hickory Nut Gorge  - Rushing waters, rocky cliffs, a giant waterfall and pristine forests make Hickory Nut Gorge a popular destination for hikers, leaf-peepers and photography buffs. Over eons, the Rocky Broad River has cut through the mountainous terrain to create the 14-mile gorge, which drops about 1800 feet between the town of Gerton and Lake Lure.
