Discover the beauty and charm of Lake Lure. Relax on one of the tour boats while your guide tells you about past local attractions and landmarks. But, don't believe your guide when told that the sand was brought in from Key West, FL.

Chimney Rock is a 535-million-year-old towering monolith. There are many things to do at Chimney Rock from hiking, rock climbing, trails for runners and bikers. Fun for the entire family.

You can explore on your own -- or take one of the guided hikes. Rock climbing instructions are offered for either half-day or full day sessions.

The movie The Last of the Mohicans was filmed at Chimney Rock and Dupont Forest.

Climb to the top and you can see for miles.

Heading Southeast on Hwy. US 74Alt W, you will drive through Bat Cave on your way to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. The Batcave community was named after the nearby cave on Bluerock Mountain that is inhabited by several species of bats. Bluerock Mountain is also known as Bat Cave Mountain.

Bat Cave is located along the Broad River. Bat Cave NC is widely recognized because it is the largest known granite fissure cave in North America. The main chamber is a dark cathedral more than 300 feet long and approximately 85 feet high. Unfortunately, to protect the bats, the cave is currently closed to visitors.
