snowy day fun!

Not too taxing, lovely views. Great fun even in the snow. Can make it as long or as short as you need as there are many trail options.

Great hiking trails, beautiful views from the front porch of the Manor House. Take the tour of the house if possible. Even though there is no furniture (last I visited) you can still see superb craftsmanship in the woodwork, fireplaces, and tiles. Great views from the upper windows. Most of the time, I don't even visit the house, just enjoy... More

Nice for walking, jogging and sight seeing. Pet friendly so we brought the dogs with us. They enjoyed getting out even though it was cold out. Pretty views.

There are many miles of trails to hike at Moses Cone Park. The Fire Tower trail is one I have hiked many times. It is not too difficult but not easy for beginners either. Don't let that scare you--if you don't hike much, this is a great trail to walk if you want some exercise and fresh air and nice... More

My wife and I visited this park during the fall foliage and had a wonderful picnic. The leaves were beautiful and the park is well maintained. This is a good place for families to visit.

Cone Manor has always been one of my absolute must stops when on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The house is home to a craft shop that features really good local crafts. There are walking and hiking trails for any level of hiker as well as horse trails. If you like a more sedentary life style, you can always just enjoy... More

Moses Cone is a regular stop for us when we visit the area. Beautiful views and numerous hiking trails with distances to suit the length of your visit and endurance of your group make it worth it for us every time. It's also our favorite stop for souvenirs, since a large variety of local crafts are sold inside the historic... More

We walked to the top of a very scenic high point; about 2 hours out and back and it was lovely. There are multiple trails of varying difficulty and length. A very nice choice for some time in the fresh air.

One of the great areas on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Visit the Cone Manor and check out the great crafts, or take a hike on the miles and miles of carriage trails that Moses Cone built as a hobby. Or bring a horse and enjoy it that way.
