Wonderful trails amidst mature forests that open up to meadows and lakes. Not very crowded when I did a 4 mile hike and everyone was friendly.

Lots of wide carriage trails make Cone Park a popular place for walking, hiking and enjoying the views. The lake is lovely and you never feel crowded because of the spacious trails. The Manor House at the top has all sorts of local crafts (very high end) in pottery, wood, textiles, jewelry, etc. Well worth a visit.

You can schedule a tour of the upstairs at the Manor House on Saturdays. A ranger leads the informative tour with the history of the Cone family, their workers and staff and apple orchards. The Southern Highlands Craft Center at the Mansion has beautiful jewelry, folk art and word works.

First the park is free. Upon entering the park, parking is somewhat limited but well shaded. There is an easy walking trail down to the historic old home. The house is open to walk through but it is also used as a crafts shop for local craftsman. The home is worth the stroll through. The architecture, the style, and the... More

We were told by the couple in the Blowing Rock Chamber of Commerce to basically go around the corner and see this park. So glad we did! Literally just a mile or so outside of town. The view from the manor overlooking the lake and Blowing Rock was great. The walk and view around the lake was great and relaxing... More

This was a grand estate that is now part of the national park. The house is grand and has some of the best views in the area. Check out some of the 25 miles of coach paths, great for hiking or horseback riding.
