"Chimney Rock National..." Nebraska Off The Beaten Path Tip by WFTR

Nebraska Off The Beaten Path: 30 reviews and 42 photos

Chimney Rock National Monument
<p>
Chimney Rock National Monument is another landmark on the Oregon Trail. The entire monument is a rock formation sticking above the surrounding grassland. For the settlers on the Oregon Trail, it was another sign that they had survived the Great Plains and were reaching the mountains.
<p>
The monument itself is just a parking area, a sign, and the rock. A small trail may have led into the grassland for fifty or a hundred feet, but it offered only a slightly better view than that from the parking lot or even from a passing car. If one is passing by on the way to another destination, it may be worth stopping to take a picture. There isn't enough to do there to make Chimney Rock a destination. Someday, I hope to put my picture of Chimney Rock on my site.
