Chimney Rock Elevator Fully Operational

After a long and slow recovery process, Chimney Rock’s elevator is once again fully operational and available for public use. In August, 2015, Chimney Rock State Park launched a capital campaign in response to a significant malfunction in the elevator.  The campaign’s goal was to replace the elevator’s motor, computer, and power lines. 2017 posed a challenge with several winter storms slowing progress, and a landslide which collapsed a portion of the attraction’s parking lot and damaged the new power lines. We are thrilled the elevator is once again available for park visitors to use and will continue to work hard to preserve the accessibility of our state park’s beautiful scenery.
