We've been working over the past year to open access to Eagle Rock at the far North end of Rumbling Bald and thanks to our friends at Chimney Rock State Park and Conserving Carolina it's finally happened with the opening of the Weed Patch Mountain trail!
The CCC funded the Tunnel Trail extension, which was the key to the access. We invested a total of $15,000 in the trail, split between an American Alpine Club grant, an REI grant and the CCC's funds. In addition, Friends of Chimney Rock the the CCC contributed a combined $1,000 to gravel for the newly expanded parking lot that will provide easy access to this beautfiul area.
Please help us put these fund back into our account for the next project by making a donation today!
