Most People Don’t Know There’s A 26-Story Elevator Shaft Carved Into This Stone Mountain In North Carolina
There are no records available of the total number of steps found throughout Chimney Rock State Park in North Carolina, but it suffices to say that if you pay a visit to the unique state park and its main attraction and don’t end up sore a day or two later – you probably didn’t see much of the park. Thankfully, though, there’s an elevator placed deep inside the mountain that takes visitors almost all of the way to the very top of Chimney Rock itself. Take a look at the coolest North Carolina elevator ever and then be sure to check it out when you take a day tip over to Chimney Rock.
