This park is worth seeing. Whether you tour the Moses Cone mansion or walk the trails in the park, you won't be disappointed. If you don't feel energetic, walk around Bass lake...if you want a nice hike, walk from the lake up to the mansion and then come back down to your car. If we lived in Blowing Rock, I'd... More

Mansion and gallery worth the trip. Usually local craftsman demonstrating on front porch. Picnic grounds with North Fork River great place to enjoy the beauties of the BLue Ridge Mountains

Beautiful views, no matter the season or time of day. There are miles of forest paths and bridges, all climbing up and down from the Moses Cone house, which sells souvenirs and local art.

This park is located near mile post 294 on the Blue Ridge Parkway just outside of Boone and Blowing Rock North Carolina. These grounds, that once belonged to a textile magnate, now offer miles of level, easy hiking trails. They also have converted the main house into a craft center that highlights many different local craft items. We visited here... More

Walk around the Lake to view the house perched above; enjoy the paths to the house and be sure to take in ALL the vistas; there's a plethora of arts and crafts to view, enjoy and purchase.

Gift shops are there, but the primary drawing point to us was the arts and crafts demonstrations. Many different kinds of live crafts are available.

The drive and home and crafts are lovely. The crafter was extremely interesting. However, the staff was pretentious.

As we rode thru the trails on horseback to the open fields of yellow and white flowers sweeping back and forth while being kissed by the ever so subtle sunset we viewed some of most beautiful sights we have ever seen. As we absorbed the peace and serenity we felt the touch of God had been placed upon us. The... More

We always come back to Moses Cone when we visit BR. The park is nice and there are some great walking trails; it's all very scenic. That being said, the actual Manor is really needing some work. I think that the state owns it, and I wish they would spend some money on maintenance. The dormers are showing signs of... More

We hiked two different trails while staying in Blowing Rock. The trail from the manor house to the fire tower is about 5.7 mi and a wide trail that leads to gorgeous views from the top of the tower. The second trail was approx. 3 miles and was around Bass Lake and through "the maze." Easy parking and access to... More
