Return to Chimney Rock

Tuesday, October 4, 2016

A few of us were left with soggy clothes and wet hair, now known as the "wet heads" (see proof above), the last time we went there. Remember that we have "FREE" rain check passes for a return trip, so let’s try it again.   Anyone else that would like to join us is welcome.


Let’s meet at Ingles on Hwy 64 and Howard Gap Road at 8:30 am. Drive East on Highway 64 to Chimney Rock Park, 431 Main St., Chimney Rock, N.C. Enter the park around 9:00 am. Unfortunately, the elevator is still inoperable.


For those without a rain check pass, the fee is $15.00; $2.00 off for seniors and last time we received another discount because of the elevator.  You also get a discount with a Biltmore pass.


We can get that nice warm sun in the morning and should be through around 12:30/1:00 pm and meet back in the parking area.


Lunch will be at the Rock Cafe at the entrance to the park then return to our meet-up spot or whenever your ride leaves. If we wait until a later date we could run into the seasonal crowds.


As usual, please RSVP to Mike Merrill at [email protected] so he will have a head count.
