A beautiful easy 1 mile loop trail in Moses Cone Park in Blowing Rock. Perfect for walking, jogging, running, bringing pets and kids. Would have been perfect for kids biking but this is not allowed. Great views of the lake, mountains, Moses Cone mansion on the walk. The lake has ducks, fish, and other wildlife. Great spot for an easy hike with little kids or older folks.

This place is beautiful. You'll see dog walkers, fisherman, joggers, hikers, and even horseback riders. A great walk to add in if you're doing some shopping in Blowing Rock. Also, connects to longer hikes. Lots of wildlife to be seen, such as, Canada Geese, swans, ducks, fish, squirrels, and may even luck up and see a beaver.

I recommend this trail for all ages. Very wide trail to accommodate strollers, slow and fast hikers, photographers, bikes and runners. Very very flat and easy! It’s beautiful- we do it as relaxation every time we are in Blowing Rock.

Very muddy day. I managed with my snap-n-go stroller, but wish I had a jogging stroller due to the mud. On a drier day the cheaper stroller would have been fine. Beautiful trail, lots of dogs and runners.

Great walking trail. Easy, flat and semi smooth trail. Perfect for a walk with our lab. Enjoyed the walk. Hoping in the future to fish the lake.

Could you ask for a more beautiful ~1 mile route to walk or run? I don't think so. The path is crushed gravel and relatively even - the views are stunning, even in the fog. Absolute heaven.

Nice easy walk or jog. Arrive early to take advantage of the cooler mornings and fewer people. Nice scenery on the longer trails.

Flat. It’s a perfect place for strollers. There’s a cool water pool at one side of the lake. There’s several species of water fowl here.

Beautiful and smooth loop to casually walk to. Grab a good friend who's good at conversations (and maybe photography too) and knock yourselves out.
