I SENTINEL OF THE GORGE
Chimney Rock, spectacular monolith, attracts visitors from all over
i the worW and is reached over excellent motor road, just 18 mile#
sast of Hendersonville.
i From the top ol' Chimney Rock ;
. a breath-taking, stupendous, en
'circling panorama unfolds! Mighty
crag* and towering cliffs, the j
j water-torn Hickory Nut Gorge of;
great depth, range on range of j
j the Blue Rid>co mountains soft-j
' ened by mystic haze, ar.<t far be- ('
i low the emerald waters of incom
; parable Lake Lure, with the Pied
! mont plain stretching to the east-j
J ward.
It was on the top of the great;
t cliff back of Chimney Rock that j
j the dance of th^ fairies was seen j
! many years at;o, so well described
1 by the historian. Dr. Sondley. The
! Bottomless Pools nearby stil! rc i
I fuse to divulge their Ku KIux !
| story of reconstruction days. The
•reason for the rumblings of
i "Shakin' Bald" are a sealed book ;
'sinc»» the mighty cliff fell in 1878. ;
Then there is the mystery of the
I "Moonshiner's Cave" and its bat -J
. tered still, wedfjed between erev- .
: ices of granite. It was through
1 this Cherokee country that IX'So
: to first penetrated.
The "Chimney" is the last word .
of the spectacular, rising sheer
'M't feet above the parking place.
How was it formed: .no one
knows. Th«» curious pot-holes or.
its top ate the tell-tales that wa
ter once poured over its summit!
For the geologists or the casual
observer 'his pile.of age-old stone
itself is" full of mystery. And it is
all easily accessible by trails,
stairways and frequent vats and
shelters. Everywhere there are
flowers, tree?, and tangled shrubs
in profusion and remarkable va
riety.
To visit Sky Line Trail and
"Appian Way," one ascends the
stairway to the top of the moun
tain above Chimney Rock. En
route the Opera Box, - then the
Devil's Head—a remarkable like
ness in granite to his Satanic
Majesty. Exclamation I'oint the
top of it all. Then one takes the
new Sky Line Trail to the Falls,
looping back1 along the face of
the precipice by the ''Appian
Way." Here are Inspiration Point,
Hickory Nut Falls—400 feet in
height—Nature's Shower Bath,
Ground Hog Slide, etc. Then very
near Chimney Rock are the Nee
dle's Eye. Pulpit Rock, Moonshin
er's Cave, the Circular Stairway,
and the "Rock Pile."
