August 5 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Thanks to the donations of the Friends of Chimney Rock State Park the new Skyline Trail is scheduled to open this September. The park would like to thank the Friends with a special first time look at the new Skyline Trail before it opens to the general public.
This strenuous 3.2-mile round trip hike will start at Cliff Dwellers where we will hike half a mile to the top of Exclamation Point. From here the hike will continue for 1.1 miles on the new Skyline Trail. We will stop for lunch at Peregrine’s Point and finish with a toast at the top of the 404-foot Hickory Nut Falls.
This hike is only available to the Friends of Chimney Rock State Park. Snacks and drinks for the toast will be provided. Bring your own lunch and water. Wear sturdy shoes. Call 828-625-1823 to register.
