Stroll up gravel path through meadows and woods to overlook with a tower and nice view of Grandfather Mountain, Boone, Blowing Rock, Sugar Mountain, etc. Easy-going walk with many switchbacks to make it a gradual climb.

Easy trail and spectacular view. Different than most area trails because of the numerous rock formations.

This is an excellent beginner trail, with great views and interpretive signs along the way. My mom used to take me out here all the time when I was younger to educate me about the forest. I enjoyed those times, but now the interpretive plaques are in disrepair. Still, the trail is enjoyable, and you can see into Linville and north. In addition, an unofficial trail spurs off from the left and goes north to Eseola and Roseboro Rd.

A nice "walk in the woods" trail. There are some great views at the north end. meanwhile, enjoy a short walk in the beautiful forest. We encountered thunderstorms on the parkway just before this trail and just after, but had blue skies for the walk.

This trail is pretty easy for the most part. A nice interpretive loop, with a view of Linville at the top. A spur trail veers off and exits parkway property to keep on going into Linville. The interpretive signs are showing their age, but the trail is still fun and family friendly.
