Heavily trafficked, but awesome if you can stand being stuck behind a lot of people. The views were amazing!

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.
