November 4, 2017 friends and I went on a "fall colors" hike on the Chimney Tops Trail. This hike is quite short but really steep (some parts are just a staircase). We climbed 1487 feet over 3.3 miles. The hike was really pretty. Many of the trees had changed colors. Unfortunately, the top of the trail was closed due to damage from the wildfires. This was still a fun hike.
