Rumbling Bald Parking Contruction    

We are happy to announce that the Rumbling Bald Climbing Area parking lot is under expansion construction. There will be construction equipment and people in the area. Some of the parking spots may be blocked but every effort will be made to keep the parking lot open during construction. Please use caution and give those working plenty of room. Carpool as much as possible. The projected finish date is April. Thank you for your help and cooperation and if you have additional questions, please call the State Park office at 828-625-1823.
