CHIMNEY ROCK, N.C. -- Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park is set to partially reopen on Friday, November 10.
A section of the park closed in October after heavy rains caused a retaining wall to collapse.
Park officials say only the lower portion of the Park, which includes the Four Seasons trail, a portion of the Hickory Nut Falls trail, the Great Woodland Adventures trail and the Animal Discovery Den, will be accessible.
Admission rates have been reduced to $6 for adults and $3 per child ages 5-15 during the partial reopen.
The park says state contractors and DOT officials have assessed the damage and are creating a plan to fix the retaining wall. There is no timeline for when the job will be done.
