Chimney Rock North Carolina

The first stop on our trip was Charlotte but we did not have the time to actually explore the city. The time it took to get that far south from New Jersey and the time it would take to get back cost us two of our 9 vacation days.

Our second day was spent at the Chimney Rock State Park just outside of Asheville, near Lake Lure. The same lake where the water scene from Dirty Dancing was shot. Chimney Rock has over 6 different trails for all different skill levels and most very family friendly. We explored three different trails while we were there.

The first was the Great Woodland Adventure designed specifically for kids.




The second trail was Chimney Rock




There were a lot of steps.. over 400 but the boys were real good.. and the view was totally worth it. 


You can see Lake Lure from the top. 

We asked the boys if they were up for another hike and surprisingly they both said yes! The third hike was the Hickory Nut Falls Trail



After a very satisfying day we got into our car and started to head down to Savannah.
