We were excited to learn that Chimney Rock Park recently reopened a portion of the Skyline Trail to a point fittingly called Exclamation Point, a little over a half mile from the Chimney. Exclamation Point is at an elevation of 2,480 feet and is the highest point in Chimney Rock Park, even higher than the Chimney. The trail is still closed to the top of the beautiful Hickory Nut Falls as work continues to improve the trail.
This section of the trail has been closed for 11 months, and we can’t wait to get over to Chimney Rock Park to see the views from the “new and improved” Exclamation Point. The park itself is a great place to hike and to see fall foliage late in the North Carolina fall foliage season (late October to early November). Chimney Rock Park is just a half hour south of the Inn on Mill Creek Bed & Breakfast and Black Mountain.
Here’s a great link to information about Exclamation Point at Chimney Rock Park:
