Chimney Rock to Partially Reopen Following Retaining Wall Collapse

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.
