"Ride an elevator up 26 stories through solid granite and cross a clearspan bridge onto the famous monolith of Chimney Rock to start your hike to Hickory Nut Falls—a most interesting way to reach the trailhead. This is just one way to access the waterfall at Chimney Rock State Park, formerly a private operation. Here Fall Creek flows over a vertical lip on Chimney Rock Mountain, dropping an impressive 404 feet. The elevator operator will introduce the area to you on your ride up."
