Natural Chimneys

Very neat rock formation. The Natural Chimneys are free to visit. Nice detour.

Natural Chimneys

Mount Solon is the home of the Jousting Hall of Fame, but far more interesting are the natural limestone "chimneys." A very pretty and scenic place to camp. You can kill a couple of hours climbing the chimneys and looking around. Part of a regional park.
