Truth delivered daily
A small landslide has closed the Hickory Nut Falls Trail at Chimney Rock State Park for an indefinite period, according to the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation.
An overnight rainstorm Nov. 14 brought down several trees and boulders onto the trail, blocking access and damaging a footbridge. The popular trail leads to the bottom of the 404-foot-high waterfall.
