Eagle Rock is located in Chimney Rock State Park and is a hot spot for climbers and hikers!

The hike to the overlook at Eagle Rock is 0.4 miles, and it's one of the most bang-for-your-buck trails in the area. We love to picnic out on the rock as it's in the sun most of the day. If you decide to do this, please keep your food to yourself.

The parking lot is small and can fit roughly eight vehicles, so be sure to get there early or visit at the beginning of the week. Also, take caution on the drive in as the road is rocky and pot-holed. It's worth it.
