Rural hike close to Winston-Salem, Piedmont stream and woodlands, and fields. This is a nice hike close to Winston-Salem. It has a nice rural feel to it after you get started. The trails include a couple of different loop options. It is a relatively easy hike with a few ups and downs along the way. The hike offers a wide variety of scenery (Piedmont woodlands and streams, mowed fields, old cemetery). This is a good trail if you're wanting to get away from town for a little while.
loop b was definitely more of a challenge hilly uneven terrain
Awesome dog parks
Good spot for a short hike. I like loop B as oppose to loop A but there is a big difference in difficulty. I would say loop A is beginner friendly, kid friendly, and all around pretty flat and easy. Loop B has more incline and brush on the trail (which I prefer), it was very wet when I went. The area was very damn and shaded.
my boyfriend and I really enjoyed this trail. at one point, on Loop A, the trail breaks off into a large open field with a beautiful bundle of trees in the middle. it was a nice detour and would be a lovely place to bring a picnic. and bug spray. but also watch for snakes and junk.
Really nice local park not far from town with a lot of activities...good place for the family. Surprisingly nice trail with two loops totaling 2.8 miles. It includes some rolling elevation changes as it follows along a creek. And it wasn't crowded on my first visit.
Great hike. Not crowded at all. This is a hidden gem of the piedmont. Trail was in good shape. There may be 1-2 areas that could become muddy after a good rain. Took family on the trail ages 7, 7, and 12. All kids managed well. Great picnic areas as well. We grilled lunch then hit the trail. Playgrounds are well cared for, grills at every table. Looking forward to returning soon.
Best park in the area.....not usually crowded and has a variety of activities besides hiking (Frisbee golf, picnic area, playground).
Easy hiking. Good trails for trail running. Nice place to take the dogs. Dog park here.
Nice trail took the dogs walking up and down hills good hike
Nice hike. easy up and down hills. Loop A and B totals to 2.8 miles and took us 1 hr and 10 min.
Nice trail, not much traffic, close to Winston-Salem. Good up and down (and up and down...) trail.
If you are just getting into trail running like I am Horizon Park is a good place to start. Plenty of shade for this time of year. The trail twist and turns climbs and decends. There are plenty of roots and rocks to trip over when you decide not to pay attention to where you are going. If you are using trail glove shoes and need to get used to them this is a good trail to start out on.
The only con I have is that someone has cleared land and pushed limbs and brush across the path. I'm guessing that the trailis about 2 miles long. After you finish running do like I do. Play Horizon Park Disc Golf!
