    This was a very nice park to visit. There are different trails that take you around the park and you can go to the top of Chimney Rock. Unfortunately, I was there on a very cloudy day so I didn't get to see the view, but I had a nice time anyway. The Moonshiner's Cave is pretty cool and I enjoyed climbing up all the rocks.
