Chimney Rock Access Closed For Repairs

The Chimney Rock Access at Chimney Rock State Park will be closed beginning Tuesday, February 4 for up to three weeks, weather permitting, as repairs are made to the main entrance road, according to the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation.

The closure affects the Chimney Rock spire and its elevator access, the Outcroppings Trail and all other visitor facilities in the vicinity. In May, a 75-foot section in one lane of the road collapsed during a period of heavy rainfall.

A contractor will be replacing a retaining wall that supports the section of roadway near the park entrance. After a 21-day construction period, single-lane access to the park will be available as road repairs continue.

Throughout the period, the parks Rumbling Bald Climbing Access will remain open.
