Great reward for little effort!

Getting to the top of Chimney Rock doesn't take long and isn't too arduous. The views from the top are stupendous though and you'll be glad you climbed it. The rocks at the top help make this mountain a little more interesting and if you track onwards, just behind and below the summit cairn (on the Annalong Valley side) you will see a memorial plaque to the men of the B-26 plane which crashed here in 1944. A few small pieces of metal underneath the memorial are all that remain of the plane. Next time you are passing, take a walk up and sit and enjoy the views!
