The Mayo River State Park's interim facility, Mayo Mountain Access, opened to the public on April 1, 2010. Located at the site are a park office/visitor contact station, picnic shelter with grills (accommodates up to 100), three individual picnic pads each with table and grill, .5-mile loop hiking trail, 1.8-mile loop hiking trail, rest rooms, catch and release fishing in the pond, and maintenance a facility. Total acreage for the entire park is presently 1,967 acres. Park staff is available to provide outreach environmental education programs and will be hosting volunteer workdays. Please check the park event database for opportunities to volunteer. For more information, please contact the park office.

Go to the waterfall trail north just before Va border instead. The falls are great, and there is a trail that takes you to and along side the river into VA. Should be a loop however and the trail needs a little work. I’d love to get some people together to do that trail up, could be beat trail in the area, beside Hanging Rock of course!

Great Sunday walk. There’s distance and incline variations. Trail was well kept and easy to follow. Park was also really well kept.

This is currently the only trail at Mayo River State Park, which is still being developed. It is a nice two-mile loop through the woods with many interpretive signs. It follows a picturesque creek for a short distance not far from the trailhead. For small kids, there is a TRACK trail that loops back for a distance of about a half mile. There are two small lakes near the facilities and parking areas. The park does not yet have a trail that provides access to the Mayo River.
