This was a very special site to see. The hike here was very easy and also had nice symbols along the way. We highly appreciated the sight.

The only downside to this hike is all the houses. There's an unmarked trail that winds up the north side of Chimney, which I prefer to the standard summit trail up little sugarloaf.
If you're wanting to see the Stupa and Peace Park take the Adante trail off the east side of chimney (thunder mtn trail) about a quarter mile from the TH.

Hiked to the stupa. I found it very interesting with all the different cultural things to look at. 3 miles round trip or if you just want to visit the stupa you can take the trail to the right and that will only be a short hike.
