Weird story, but the hike up is pretty. I did it in the Summer and the greenage was amazing. The view from the top of the rock is the icing on the cake. Enjoyed it.

Beautiful view from the top... not so sure that the chain is what is protecting the city of Pineville from its demise, but it's a nice attraction lol. My 8-year old handled it fine, but would need to be extra careful with really small children as the rock is pretty steep. Also, there are lots of steps, which may be rough to climb for someone who is not used to it. Overall it's a pretty hike :)

A nice walk through the mountains rated easy to moderate because of a good amount of man made steps throughout the trail.
I climbed up the rock to the chain for some nice pictures and views of the mountains and towns below.

Easy, pleasant walk. Great view but not of wilderness. Sounds of distant traffic was distracting. Would be spectacular for fall colors.

Took all my grand kids here so this is very educational for young and old. Have to be careful with the little ones tho. Awesome view once you get to the top.
