Discover the beauty of the Appalachia’s both wild and rural. Your day begins with the expansive views of Chimney Rock State Park where your group is welcome to enjoy one of the many leisure or intensive hiking trails on the property. Lunch at the award-winning Old Rock Cafe is included with this package to enjoy at your leisure after 11am. At 2pm, join the park’s animal educators for the Animal Encounter, an interactive experience where you can touch, feel, and learn about the wildlife at the park. After meeting the animals of the wild, your group will drive an easy 20 minutes North up 74A for the evening portion of your day trip.

|What to Wear|
Chimney Rock State Park is a great place to bring hiking boots, plenty of water, binoculars, and a great camera.
At Hickory Nut Gap, be sure to wear boots or tennis shoes that can get dirty. Dress weather appropriate. If selecting the horseback riding option, be sure to wear jeans to prevent unwanted chafing of the legs.
