Chimney Rock

Matt PopowskiOct. 18 Report - Chimney Rock State Park

Oct. 15, 2013, A family admires fall colors on the Sky Lounge bridge near the Chimney.

All roads leading to Chimney Rock are exploding with color now in the higher elevations. Inside the park, leaf colors are turning near the Chimney and above, with many yellows, reds and some oranges. Brighter colors are appearing on the entrance road daily. While there’s still plenty of green, with the forecast of cool nights and sunny days ahead, autumn colors should be showing in the higher elevations next week.
