Here you will find 11 zip lines, two huge rappels and a sky bridge. From the beginning to the end, you will drop over 1,100 feet over some of the most breathtaking scenery known to mankind. Leave your valuables in the motorhome, because it can be a thrill ride! To get there from Greenville, travel north on US Hwy 25 to I-26 East (merge right). Go east on I-26 to Exit 59 (Saluda).

Chimney Rock State Park is a great destination in your Cruise America rental RV. You will be mesmerized at the breathtaking views that extend 75 miles over Lake Lure, NC, as well as the Blue Ridge Mountains. Here you will find intriguing geological formations, four established hiking trails and scenery that you only thought existed in storybooks. You can take an elevator that is literally built inside the mountain, which will lift you 26 stories up the trail to the Chimney Level. If you continue your ascension, it will have to be on foot. When you reach the easily recognized "Devil's Head" formation and the "Opera Box," it's a good opportunity to catch your breath before continuing on up to Exclamation Point, the highest point you can reach, towering 2,480 ft. in the air. This popular viewpoint was featured in the movie, Last of the Mohicans. To get to Chimney Rock take Highway 25 North (White Horse Road) into North Carolina. Follow the signs to Interstate 26 West and Asheville (do not take Highway 25 into Hendersonville). Get on Interstate 26 West. At Exit #49A (Bat Cave and Highway 64 East), turn right onto Highway 64 East. Go 18 miles and the park entrance will be on the right.
