Don't be discouraged if you see lots of cars parked along the entrance to Moses Cone Park or along the Blue Ridge Parkway. That's a compliment to this park! It is worth seeing. The entire area is breathtaking and the Moses Cone estate is worth...More

The house had just closed when we arrived but the Ranger was very friendly and told us all about area and what there is to do. There are numerous hiking trails and the bathrooms were clean.

There are lots of trails for walking and hiking. Be aware that not all trails are well marked The craft center is a fun stop, with local vendors.

There are tons of hiking and horseback riding trails and the Parkway Craft Center is excellent! I watched a gentleman carving flutes before perusing the craft shops filled with glass, pottery, jewelry and paintings. There's also a Blue Ridge Parkway gift shop area.

This is an impressive mansion on incredible grounds. There use to be a very large craft and gift store, but it was cut in half. Still nice, but not what it used to be. More space for the NPS store, but not as nice as...More

We have been to this site several times over the last 15 years. Beautiful location and gorgeous in any season. The Cone House is undergoing some renovations and improvements which should enhance the travel experience there. Recommend this stop when visiting the Blowing Rock area...

I wouldn't assume that use of a metal detector would be OK. Probably best to call 1st.

The quickest is the Deer Park trail. If you take the Maze toward the Apple Barn and then turn left onto Watkin Road you can also get there, but it is much further.

I suggest you contact them directly. I know that in our area of North Carolina there are times in the winter when the Blue Ridge Parkway is closed even though local roads may be open and safe. Sorry but I just don't know... More
