Hikes That Use This Trail: Chimney Rock Tour, Hickory Nut Falls

This trail is located in the Chimney Rock State Park area. For a list of all the trails in that area, see the Chimney Rock State Park trails list page.


Following an old jeep road, this trail leads through a mixed hardwood forest to the base of 404-foot Hickory Nut Falls. Some sections are rocky, but the hills are generally mild and children should be able to reach the falls. This trail was formerly known as the Forest Stroll until the more appropriate, current name was applied.
