Chimney Rock

Matt PopowskiOct. 10 Report - Chimney Rock State Park

October 10, 2013, Coreopsis wildflower on Skyline Trail.

Many colorful fall wildflowers are still in bloom at Chimney Rock State Park. You’ll see goldenrod, wingstem and a variety of asters (especially purple species) near the Chimney level and above on the Skyline Trail.

Fall colors are speckling the higher elevations and the Rumbling Bald Access, with bright purples in the dogwood trees, more reds in the sourwoods and muted yellows from the poplars. A few maples are starting to turn.

For more information about visiting this location, go to North Carolina State Parks and Rutherford Tourism.
