From high atop the ridges of Chimney Rock Mountain, enjoy dramatic views while surrounded in a sea of color, from deep red and maroon to fiery yellow and orange. Led by internationally renowned naturalist Ron Lance, soak up Western NC’s legendary fall colors while hiking more than 1,000 feet above the valley floor. Bring your camera—this is our most scenic hike all year long! The 2-hour hike is moderately strenuous. Photo by Stacy Redmon.
