    Great for hiking! The views are incredible. It should take you about 4 hours to hike the whole park. You can take an elevator to the base of Chimney Rock or take the stairs. Call first to see if elevator is working. The little town of Chimney Rock is perfect for the hidden treasures.

    If you have a motorcycle or a sports car and you like a thrill, the Tail of the Dragon is for you. It's a fun little drive. Unfortunately it seems that when you want to get some speed, you end up behind someone that wants to go slower than you. But I guess that's life.
