Chimney Rock

Matt PopowskiOct. 16 Report - Chimney Rock State Park

Oct. 16, 2013, View of Chimney Rock Mountain looking back from the Chimney.

The drive to Chimney Rock is gorgeous now! Fall color is spreading daily through the park’s higher and middle elevations and Rumbling Bald Access. Bursts of yellow are appearing in the chestnut oaks, hickories and locust trees, and especially the ash trees near the Chimney. Some autumn wildflowers are still blooming, including many asters and some snakeroot.
