One of the popular trails in Chimney Rock State Park leads to an exceptional water feature, the Hickory Nut Falls. The moderate hike, taking in a mile and a half roundtrip, leads to the base of the 400 foot falls. Most summertime hikers are rewarded with the falls cooling mist. Today, the falls is all but frozen, as weeklong winter temperatures remained below freezing.
