The Cone mansion is only mildly interesting, with very over priced cliche-type things for sale, but the walking trails are among the most beautiful, well kept we have ever used. Words do not do justice to the magic, beauty, cleanliness of this park and its walking trails.

Great place to share with guests & first time visitors! Beautiful Cone Manor is always a showpiece & great tour with Cone family history. The view is breathtaking from the front porch & fun to imagine what life there was like so long ago....pretty good if you were a Cone! Great stables for horseback riding & beautiful trails for hiking!... More

My husband and I hiked part of the trails, and also did a horseback riding trail ride through Moses H Cone Park. It was beautful and has plenty to see! My only complaint was LOTS of horse droppings along the trails, so watch your step!

This is a park run by the National Park Service and it is just outside of Blowing Rock, NC. It is a good place to stop for a walk and stretch after a drive or after lunch in Blowing Rock. It has restrooms, but parking can sometimes be a problem and you may have to park at the entrance. It... More

Very enjoyable and made for some really nice pics. Views like this make me jealous of those who get this privilege every day but I'm so grateful I have had the opportunity to share.

We go by the estate every time we go to Blowing Rock. It has beautiful scenery,walking and riding trails. I love the craft center. All items are hand crafted in NC. There is woodworking, pottery, jewelry and weaving. NO ADMISSION! How often it that the case!

This turn of the century mansion is a mini Biltmore on the Blue Ridge Pkwy, now a craft center, and has a fascinating history. Well worth the stop. the 25 mikes of carriage trails now for hiking and horses are fabulous

Well worth seeing. The grounds and history of the estate are beautiful and expansive. The museum itself is in perfect condition and they have local artisans showing their wares. Many trails to walk, too.

The manor is also a "craft" center, but is truly an art center. The works are superb! We saw an artist weaving her items and the wood and glassware are exquisite! The view is phenomenal and we were pleased to see the Cone was a sibling of the Cone sisters who so generously donated much art to our Baltimore Museum... More
