Great wide gravel trails, blooming rhododendrons, beautiful Bass Lake, nice balance between sun and shade... a perfect hike! Also enjoyed looking at the local art in Moses Cone Mansion after our 6.6 mile trek.

Good trail to hike! Well maintained with gorgeous views at the top. There is a decent amount of people and horse traffic on this trail though.

Nice wooded walk to a lake with a view of the manor and then back. Great place to watch birds, enjoyed watching 3 yellow bellied sap suckers do their thing. Took about 2 hours round trip at a leisurely pace. Direct access to lake from other entry points via another trailhead vs hiking all the way from the manor.
