Great House Eclipse Experience

Chimney Rock National Monument Tours

A Special Eclipse Experience at Chimney Rock

Come join a select few on Saturday, October 14th, 2023 for a guided tour up to the Great House Pueblo for a magnificent viewing spot of the annular solar eclipse.

The gate will open at 8:30 a.m. with check-in from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m.

The eclipse will begin at 9:10 a.m. --- reach a maximum of 93.1% solar coverage at 10:35 a.m. --- and conclude by 12:00 noon.

Because of limited parking, shuttles will transfer participants to the trailhead. The 2/3 mile round-trip trail is considered moderate with some rough, rocky sections and steep drop-offs. Bring something soft to sit on while viewing the eclipse.

The fee is $25 per person. This will cover the Forest Service's entry fee and NASA approved protective glasses for each participant. Tickets are limited to 35 people. 

Reservations strongly recommended. Limited space.
