Rich Mountain Carriage-Moses Cone Memorial Park-Blue Ridge Parkway is about is located near Blowing Rock, North Carolina. The trail is great for hiking and normally takes 1-3 hours. This is one of the many longer hikes in Blowing Rock North Carolina. This hike is attached to the Moses Cone Memorial Park trail system called the Rich Mountain Carriage Trail. To get to the starting point get off the Blue Ridge Parkway the exit before you reach Moses Cone Manor and take a right if you are going North on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Head towards Shulls Mill Road, go under the Blue Ridge Parkway and pass Trout Lake on your right hand side. After Trout lake its about 1/2 mile on your right you will see a gate that looks like a private driveway. This is the start of the trail. The hike is a nice gradual incline that winds its way to a very large pasture where you can go right to Trout Lake or continue straight and then go right or left which is a loop around. The trail keeps going around the side of the mountain until you reach the upper meadow which is covered by many pretty wildflowers and butterflies. The trail continues to keep circling around the mountain until you reach the summit, where there is a brick wall and a nice oak tree to rest under for a few minutes. This hiking trail is great for families, dogs, and kids of younger ages. The trail is a very gradual incline and very wide enough for horses which frequent the trail.Show more

A lesser used Moses Cone carriage trail. Includes a double loop similar to The Maze, only smaller. Open and shut the wooden gate to enter. Take the right fork 100 yards from the gate to go to a field with a nice lookout. Double back and take the right fork to wind up and down the hilltop on a classic Moses Cone road design. It will bring you back near the gate.Show more
