The Chimney Rocks site has historically provided Hollidaysburg residents a dramatic panoramic view of the Borough and its surrounding area. The rocks are also reproduced on the seal of the Borough of Hollidaysburg, and has a 20 foot high lighted star placed there during the holiday season.
Previously, the stunning limestone pillars atop the ridge had been visited informally by almost every resident with the physical ability to climb the face.
Many a resident will ask another if you have ever sat in the Chief's seat, which is a rock pad atop the limestone pillars. Local lore claims the Chief of the local Native American tribe would sit in this area and view his tribe.
