Outstanding and a beautiful place to hike.

This is a must stop place on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The house is amazing and if you are a hiker there are many trails to walk.

This is a great place to go hiking on groomed trails. They have over 28 miles for easy to medium hard to hike or riding your horses through. From wildlife and livestock to view. The house is a quick stop to see. The place is more for walking.

When we stopped in the Blowing Rock Visitor's Center they told us about this home so we pulled off when we saw the signs. The former owner of this home invented denim - thank you Moses :-) What a beautiful location - especially during Fall. We took a little walk along the property and just marveled at the view from...

The manor is always on my top must-sees for the Blowing Rock area. The crafts are superior and the house is beautifully restored. Especially in fall, the views from the front porch are spectacular. I've visited a half dozen times and always had a fine time. I think this Craft Guild shop is superior to the one in Asheville which... More

Stopped by for a quick trail hike and to enjoy the scenery but ended up walking through "the maze" trail, over 2 miles long of pure woods. Starts on Bass Lake and ends there too. If you have a horse, these trails are great for horseback riding.

I guess this was nice at one time. We were here in 2010 and it was an overpriced craft area with very rude staff. House was closed and there were no other restrooms open. Nice view of Julian Price Lake.

This is a great park, accessible from the Blue Ridge Parkway or from Downtown Blowing Rock. Nice wide walking paths that cover 6+ miles if desired with nice views of the Moses Cone Estate. My husband and I love to run here. You can take a short paved path around Bass Lake where there are restrooms available or venture up... More

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!
