: To clarify just a bit, the lower trail (which you took on your visit) is where all the Chimney Rock filming was done. The tearful pictures you saw were taken at Table Rock, where the final scenes of the movie were filmed. The upper trail at Chimney Rock is beautiful in its own right, however, and certainly well worth hiking. The views are splended from there, even though none of the movie was filmed along it.
Let me interject ... correct me if I'm misinterpreting, but I THINK the lower trail Karen refers to is the Forest Stroll, to the very bottom of the falls, where, indeed, no filming took place.
The great cliff scenes took place on the Cliff Trail, as we all know. The Skyline Trail, which runs above that, actually did figure in the filming. That is where the falling bodies actually fell from ... to land on mats & netting on the Cliff Trail below! Did I confuse EVERYONE?
