Went Sunday and it was very crowded. It was a hot day and there was little breeze. A nice hike, with stairs, but preferred it be less crowded.

Very very busy. Barely anyone are wearing masks but a really fun hike to do.

The trail is in the park. It cost 17$ to get through to the parking lot, you can shuttle up to the top of Chimney Rock or you can hike the trails all the way up. Personally since we paid to get in, we shuttled up top and then made our way down the trails back to the parking lot. There were a lot of large 3ft steps along the first part of this trail. Overall it was a nice trek down to the parking lot.,

Great trail but about 2/3 of it is steps. We started at the bottom. It was a hard climb up. The poodles were worn out after so we took the bus back down to the car.

Great trail! We wanted to explore all of the trails in the park and this is the first trail from the parking lot. Moderate trail with the first of MANY sets of steps in the park but absolutely beautiful flora, rocks and outcrops!

Too many steps that are man-made.

We recommend taking a shuttle to Chimney Rock to do the upper trail hikes. it's all downhill from there to return to your car.

Lots of man made steps throughout. Falls were beautiful as well as the lookouts. Plenty of fellow hikers. Not sure if I’d do it again but was a nice way to spend an afternoon.

Went on this trail recently, on a Sunday. It was heavily traveled that day. There are a good many steps along the way, a decent incline, through the forest toward the trail that will take you to the 400 ft waterfall, that is gorgeous. Just hang a right at this trail's conclusion, and a 15 minute, easy walk, will take you to said fall, which was featured in The Last of the Mohicans movie. My husband, 2 dogs, and I had a blast.

This was our favorite trail at Chimney Rock because it was the least touristy and busy. If you have the time and energy make this part of your Chimney Rock experience.
