Nice views. Lots of stairs but besides that the trail isn't bad.

This place was beautiful!! I am truly thankful I was able to make it to the top!! It was quite a difficult task due to nothing but stairs however there were plenty of places to stop and rest and also other people to help encourage you. I made it all the way up to exclamation point and it was WELL WORTH IT!!

Chimney Rock State Park is a great place to explore nooks and crannies with great views. From the very start, you enter the world of stair-climbing. Visit places like the Grotto, the Subway [tight tunnel under the rock], Pulpit Rock [make a speech or deliver a sermon!], Vista Rock [see where you parked], Devil's Head, the Opera Box, Chimney Rock, the Sky Lounge and Exclamation Point. Take your time and stop to enjoy the views unless you want to get in a good cardio leg busting workout - if so, don't stop all the way to the top! Great views and although the entrance fee is a bit expensive, $13, they keep the steps safe and even have an elevator to the Sky Lounge for those wanting to take a short cut [this is currently closed for repairs].

The views are amazing, so worth all the stairs up.

We thoroughly enjoyed the view and the chance to leave the crowd behind and travel up to the top of Chimney Rock and Exclamation Point.
