Not far from the cities of the Triad area, off the four-lane highways there's another North Carolina to be discovered - sheer cliffs and peaks of bare rock, quiet forests and cascading waterfalls, views of the piedmont plateau that stretch for miles. Hike the trails of Hanging Rock State Park and let nature put life's hectic pace in perspective. Rent a vacation cabin and fall asleep to the lullabies of spring peepers and chorus frogs. Join an interpretive program and discover something new about nature's bounty. Rock formations of the small Sauratown Range are impressive, and the view from the old ranger tower location atop Moore's Knob is the best in the region. It also features several of the prettiest waterfalls in this region of North Carolina. Nestled in the hills is a cool mountain lake that beckons to swimmers and fishermen. Picnic areas and campgrounds lend themselves to time spent with family and friends. Hanging Rock State Park awaits you.

For the first time I have ever gone hiking, it may have been a little too much for me at 62 years old. But my son kept me going and we finally reached the top and the views were amazing!! Going down the stairs was not as easy as I thought it would be. But so glad we didn’t it!!

my dogs and I completed the Reach the Peaks challenge. love these trails

Moderately difficult hike with an incredible payoff. A little busy for my taste, but a good challenge, nice distance, and a beautiful scene once you get to the Hanging Rock vista.
