Winter Hiking Advisory: What You Need to Know

Winter Weather Is Here!

From now through April, visitors can expect to encounter snow, ice, extreme cold temperatures and high winds.

Hiking above Profile View on the Profile Trail and Flat Rock View on the Daniel Boone Scout Trail is not recommended for inexperienced or unequipped hikers. High winds, cold temperatures and unseen ice are all trail hazards that should be taken seriously. 

Don't brave ridgeline trails unless you are experienced in winter alpine conditions and fully prepared for the weather with all necessary gear.

Eagle Rock is Open

Chimney Rock State Park is proud to announce that the new Eagle Rock Access is officially open! In partnership with Carolina Climbers Coalition, Friends of Chimney Rock State Park, and Conserving Carolina, the last finishing touches were made on this climbing area that was first developed for climbing in the 1980’s. Due to difficulties with public access and management, this area has not been open to climbing until now!
