Facility:Chimney Rock Park
Description:Chimney Rock Park is the natural fulfillment of your trip to the mountains. Take a deep breath of refreshing mountain air, become invigorated by our hiking trails, and let your cares fade away in the cool mists of Hickory Nut Falls. This is the perfect place to reconnect with nature and spend time with family and friends. The Park, located 25 miles southeast of Asheville, North Carolina, offers the best of the mountains in one place-spectacular 75-mile views, hiking trails for all ages, a 404-foot waterfall, a variety of special events and much more.

Not only is this a fantastic family field trip, but the park is also a big fan of educators. Throughout the year there are numerous activities that are not only educational but fun!

This is a wonderful place for hiking and exploring nature. They also offer wonderful homeschooling classes if you live close enough to travel to them. The entire town is an experience worth repeating. They have a beautiful water fall at the bottom of the mountain but we are at our happiest when standing on the top. If you have little ones and think that the hike would be hard on them you can choose to ride the elevator instead of hiking.

Gorgeous views! Haven't done any of the educational seminars, but would like to in the future. Great place for hiking/picnic-ing.

If you enjoy hiking and nature, Chimney Rock is a wonderful destination. The views are so beautiful. There is plenty of camping nearby so you can stay a few days and enjoy this beautiful place. We enjoyed visiting here very much.

Great place to hike and picnic! The elevator is a lifesaver for those with small children - either up or down or both. Wonderful views and foliage galore!
Beverly Yopp, Co-op Member
This place is a unique fieldtrip for homeschooled kids that love water falls,hiking, picnicing and camping. Try planning a trip in the fall season when the leaves are at their peak--an absolutely breath-taking site! We hope to take in some of the educational projects this year to add to the experience!

This is an excellent place for hiking for sure! Beautiful views, though some of it is not for those afraid of heights! I let my husband climb up with out me and our daughter for some parts of it. Unfortunate for us we went during a drought and the waterfalls were dry in some areas. This did not take away from the beauty though.
