Parking update from Carolina Climbers Coalition:
As the season for climbing at Rumbling Bald ripens, we wanted to help spread the word to all climbers that the parking situation at Rumbling Bald will be restricted this year. Historically, climbers have enjoyed ample and unrestricted parking at the Bald and along Boys Camp Rd. Since the completion of the new state park facilities and parking area at Rumbling Bald, the Park and the Town of Lake Lure have made it clear of their intention to limit the parking to that available in the new parking area only. Parking outside of the park gate and along the sides of this entrance road or Boys Camp Rd. will be prohibited. The Town of Lake Lure intends to promote a towing policy for any cars parked outside of legitimate parking places.
