Please be at Trinity by 9 a.m.Thursday, August 24th for the drive down to Lake Lure. We will be met by a guide and can either walk the 500 steps or ride the 26 story elevator to the top of Chimney Rock for a spectacular view of the lake and surrounding mountains. We will take a few short walks on top with a guide who will share the history of Chimney Rock and then descend to Lake Lure to have lunch at La Strada. After lunch we will walk the Lake Lure Flowering Bridge before our return to Asheville around 4:30 or 5 p.m. Trinity covers the bus fee and the entrance fee to Chimney Rock State Park.
