Take a Hike to Flat Top Tower- 

A great hike for you and your dog! Located on the Blue Ridge Parkway at milepost 297, the Flat Top Tower Trail is one of the trails you can take at Moses Cone Manor. The hike is a 6 mile (round trip) hike that gives you magnificent views along the way. At the top is the tower where you can see a fantastic 360 degree view of our wonderful Blue Ridge Mountains. This dog-friendly trail is wide and nicely compacted and can bring horseback riders, joggers, or in winter, cross-country skiers! Because of all the activity on the Carriage Trails at Moses Cone Park, all dogs are required to be on a leash.
