Five of us hiked this trail on July 20. We loved it, except for the loud highway noise from US 421 during the first mile or so of the hike. Even in late July we were able to see wildflowers such as Jack-in-the pulpit.

A very well maintained park on US 421 just east of a Boone. Though primarily for mountain biking, hiking and trail running are allowed on several of the loop trails. There is a nice variety of difficulty levels.

Rocky as the name would suggest. This trail system is very well kept and marked, and has trails for different levels of riding. A long ascent to the top is well worth the extremely fun descent back to the parking lot.

The Summit is on private property. The resident was outside and was gracious to share his great view with me.
