Relive The Last of the Mohicans where its final scenes filmed
The Last of the Mohicans last graced the big screen in 1992, but you can relive the beauty of its dramatic scenery by visiting Chimney Rock State Park located just 45 minutes outside of Asheville. Based on the James Fenimore Cooper novel of the same name, the Academy Award-winning film paints a portrait of life during the French and Indian War in 1757. The final 17 minutes of the historical epic feature sweeping views of the towering cliffs and 404-foot waterfall that hundreds of visitors travel to Rutherford County to marvel each year. Stand at the top of Hickory Nut Falls and walk the winding Skyline Trail where stars Daniel Day-Lewis and Madeleine Stowe filmed the intense final scenes. Can’t get enough of The Last of the Mohicans? Chimney Rock Park holds an annual summer screening of the film on a 35-foot screen at the base of the mountain.
