CHIMNEY ROCK, N.C. -

 

Road safety has been completed at Chimney Rock State Park, it opened on Saturday.

The park was closed earlier this week because of a large boulder that was hanging above the road.

"The safety of our guests and Park associates is of utmost importance. Now that the boulder has been dropped and cleared away, we're happy to be able to welcome guests back just in time to celebrate Earth Day and enjoy the Park's spring scenery and many wildflowers in full bloom. Our Carolina rhododendron, flowering dogwood and Silverbell trees are spectacular," said Mary Jaeger-Gale, General Manager, Chimney Rock at Chimney Rock State Park

The four to five tone section was broken off by transportation crews.

Chimney Rock State Park is closed.  The popular North Carolina park is not allowing visitors due to a large boulder hanging near the main road above the Meadows.

Park officials are working with the Department of Transportation to remove it.

Right now, there's no date set to reopen, but officials are hoping to do it before the weekend.
