Long description

Daily, dawn to dusk. Rated 2B. Starting at a unique inn and spa, meander toward a covered bridge and along a most pleasant bathing beach. Walk through the charming Lake Lure Flowering Bridge, stroll to the village of Chimney Rock to enjoy walking along the Broad River with fantastic views of Chimney Rock and Hickory Nut Falls, both featured prominently in the movie "Last of the Mohicans". Pick up great buys at local shops and enjoy sumptuous meals. You'll then return to walk along Lake Lure, site of the annual Dragon Boat races, with its restful parks and extensive marina. The movie "Dirty Dancing" was filmed in Lake Lure. All this set against a background of majestic mountains and sheer gorge cliffs.
