One of my favorite places to hike in the Blowing Rock area between October and May. The old fire lookout tower atop Flat Top Mountain is worth the 5-mile round-trip effort (from Cone Manor).

Moses Cone lived in a home on the Parkway but his property abuts Blowing Rock, NC and you can see it on a walk around Bass Lake. Reach it by going onto the Parkway and following directions. Inside the house you will discover beautiful items created by artisans. There is pottery galore and other things of beauty that make great... More

We live near here and visit often, mostly for hiking. It is very popular in the warm months with visitors. The trails are easy and you can choose to walk as long as you'd like and then turn around. If we ever get snow, the trails are very good for x-country skiing too.

So I finished working the graveyard shift and decided to pack and go for a short and sweet trip to my favorite place during the fall of the year. By the time the sun began to rise we were all set to watch it rise from Moses Cones' Home. What a beautiful sunrise!

Every time we get near Blowing Rock we ALWAYS stop here. This trip we drove from Florida so we could bring our dog. The walk around Bass lake is really easy and is so beautiful. We were lucky and actually saw the beavers that live in Bass lake. If you look carefully you can see where they have been cutting... More

As others have said, this is a very beautiful area and worth a stop. I really hope that one day they can restore the mansion and possibly use it in a different way. It sits on an amazing setting.

Nice walking path around Bass Lake - about .7 miles - and wide enough for runners and walkers. The Maze is about 2 miles and a beautiful moderate walk around the Apple Barn.

My husband and I visited the park with the intentions to see Cone Manor and I am so happy we did! Hands down, this is the most beautiful house and area we have ever seen. We were amazed that the house was just locked up with no security or anyone watching the house, as it is such a lovely house!!... More
