Updates on Chimney Rock Park
Since my husband is a chef and normally works on holidays, we have created a tradition of taking hikes in the mornings of the days he has to work. If friends are visiting, they come too.
This year on Black Friday, we headed out to Chimney Rock with friends from Connecticut. It was a wonderful warm day so we took a few new trails. Check out my older Chimney Rock post for the details. We did a couple of new trails this year - the Four Seasons Trail and Hickory Nut Falls Trail.
John Mason plays the hammered dulcimer at various locations in the park on nice days. He was playing outside the Sky Lounge Deli, serenading the hikers. It was a busy day and we had to leave our car in the Meadows and take a shuttle up to the entrance.
The Park is now a State owned park and is open year round except for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's day. Check it out at chimneyrockpark.com!
