Chimney Tops

Following a gain of 1400-feet along a steep, two mile hike, visitors are rewarded with a view of Chimney Tops, a half-billion year old peak composed of slate, schist and phyllite rocks. You can visit my shops at Pixels and Redbubble for great print options & other fine items!

    Tempting to climb that to sit on the top.

      Hahaha Yes, but it’s farther, taller, and much more hazardous than it looks in this photograph. I climbed up as far as was safe, after which there are very few reliable hand-holds & a very long drop 🤕

    It’s an amazing hike. I believe it was closed for a while after the fires. I am looking forward to hiking it again soon.

      Yes, on both counts. I’m not sure if they’ve reopened the final/top section of the trial, yet, as they did have a simple gate in place (late 2019).

        Thanks Phil. I’m on my way down in Sept so I’ll check before I make any hiking plans.
