Yates Mill is the last operating, water-powered gristmill in NC's capital county. The 18th century mill was restored, and the 174-acre park developed, through a partnership among the County of Wake, Yates Mill Associates, and NC State University...more
All reviews old mill water wheel welcome center beautiful pictures offer tours education center rocking chairs interesting information visitor center is nice trail quiet walk small fee flora and fauna local history main building beautiful lake hiking trails
If you want a beautiful and relaxing walk - try this park. The mill is very photogenic and the park is just enough to make a quick nature break worth your time while still leaving time to do other things along the way.
Nice place to spend a couple of hours. There is a museum that will take no more than 15-30 minutes. Nice trails, length depends on which you choose. The mill itself is a great photo spot. Lots of nature, we also brought lunch and ate...More
Went with the family to check out Yates Mill - very scenic and peaceful. The museum in the welcome center is very informative. Pleasant stroll to get to the mill. Fun afternoon excursion for the family.
Easy to find. Beautiful grounds. Make sure you walk around the pond - lots to see on the trail - try and get a photo of the turtles.
No crowds but one very annoying group that that seemed to shadow us....please try to be quiet...More
This is a beautiful place to go in the fall. The colors in the trees are so vivid. There were a few photographers taking family pictures out there. There are 3 trails, each only a mile or less. There is a lovely dock that people...More

It looks like several helpful folks have already answered your question, but I'll add a few details just in case...if you park on the visitor center-end of the parking lot (located off 4620 Lake Wheeler Road) and head to the gravel path that's located to the left/east side of the building, then you can follow this path to the mill (there will be a T-interaction after you pass the building - you'll want to head to the left). The path is about 600 feet long and there are several benches to stop and rest along the way, in addition to a picnic area about half-way there.
