I was here for a weekend running camp and we ran the park trails for 3 days. The carriage paths are well maintained, and provide a great place to hike, ride or run.

Neat manor and gift shop. Better foot trails elsewhere. Did the Flat Top Tower carriage trail hike. Tower experience soiled by all the flies.

Visit the Moses Cone House for beautiful views and gorgeous upscale crafts made by talented artists. Walking trails are lovely and views are outstanding.

The manor is operated the state parks association. Guided tours of the home are free. But you must call and reserve a space. The 3600 acres has limitless trails and horseback riding available. The view overlooking Bass Lake and the mountains is well worth the visit. Also has a sizable but pricey crafts store of local artists.

Moses H. Cone Memorial Park is a perfect place to enjoy the beautiful scenery and just get away from it all by walking the well maintained carriage trails throughout the countryside.

The artisans selling crafts had some truly lovely and creative pieces for sale. Didn't walk the grounds, but the view from the house was fabulous!

Here is this big house in the middle of the Parkway. Lots of local goods being sold there (all of nice quality). You can access the home via the Parkway. You don't need a horse the way we arrived.
