The Perfect Easter Weekend: Sunrise Service at Chimney Rock and WNC's Best Asheville Cabins


Highlight your Easter vacation with Sunrise Service at Chimney Rock State Park! An Easter Sunday excursion for hundreds of people eager to experience nature's display of magnificent colors, this annual service is a treasured tradition. The inter-denominational event began 55 years ago and continues to delight participants with a worship service of scripture, song, and fellowship. Don't miss this once-a-year chance to see the sunrise over Hickory Nut Gorge and Lake Lure!

Gates to Chimney Rock State Park will be open from 5:00 am until 6:00 am for the 6:30 am Easter Sunday service on March 31, 2013. The $15.00 park admission fee is waived for those attending the Sunrise Service, and guests are welcome to stay and enjoy the park after the service ends. A few of the featured attractions to see are the 400-foot high Hickory Nut Falls, the views along Skyline Trail, and Grady's Animal Discovery Den.

Just 25 minutes southeast of Asheville, Chimney Rock is a favorite warm weather destination for Blue Ridge enthusiasts. Gurgling Rocky Broad River runs alongside the winding highway, which brings you to town through a valley formed by steep cliffs. Chimney Rock, a 535-million-year-old landmark, rises above town, inviting visitors to witness the breathtaking views from high atop its peak. Though Chimney Rock is a tiny mountain town, there's plenty to do there with rock and mineral shops, restaurants serving Southern-style cuisine, mini-golf, and beautiful Lake Lure, a sporting paradise, located only a few miles further down the road.
