The Chimney Rock Trail, which inspired Georgia O’Keeffe starts at Ghost Ranch, where O’Keeffe lived. The trailhead is behind the Ghost Ranch museums. Cross the arroyo to begin the hike. The Chimney Rock trail is roughly three miles long, round trip. This is a moderate route that climbs from 6,500 to 7,100 feet to this rock formation. Although the path is well maintained, it’s a good idea to wear proper hiking shoes. The route is exposed so be sure to bring plenty of water – and a hat in summer. Near the top, the terrain becomes rocky. Some people like to bring hiking sticks for this section.
