We’re back this week with another #YearOfTheTrail feature, exploring the carriage trails at Moses H. Cone Memorial Park! 🌳This month we decided to hike the Deer Park/Watkins Rd./Apple Barn loop section of the park. This roughly 4 mile trail is a very popular destination for folks with horses, those looking to walk their dog, or simply to get some good exercise! TRAIL DETAILS 🥾:Name: Deer Park to Watkins Rd. LoopLocation: Moses H. Cone Memorial ParkDistance: About 4 mile loopEstimated Time: About 2 hoursSurface: Gravel, some wet areas along the wayConditions: Very well maintainedUse: Horseback Riding, Walking, Dog WalkingDifficulty: Easy to ModerateAccess: Park at the Flat Top Manor parking area and walk towards the Carriage Barn. From just below the barn, you’ll take a left and follow the horse trail to begin the loop.If you’re planning to take this trail, make sure you’ve given yourself adequate time to complete the loop, as it can be quite the climb back uphill if you’re in a rush or the weather were to turn sour while on the trail. Dogs are very much welcome on this loop, but keep in mind that they must be on a leash at all times as it’s possible you’ll cross some horseback riders at some point!We hope you’re enjoying #YearOfTheTrail as much as we are so far, and want to know what trails you’ve been taking! Let us know in the comments below your favorite trails this year, and where you want to see us go this summer! 🥾---#blowingrocknc #YearOfTheTrail #visitnc #hiking #blueridgeparkway #blueridgemountains #spring #horsebackriding Visit North Carolina Great Trails NC ...
