Hanging Rock State Park is full of natural wonders, from waterfalls to unique geological features, from rocky cliffs where birds of prey roost to the wonderful Dan River. Hike, or mountain bike, on nearly 20.0 miles of trails, or take a dip in the park’s marvelous mountain lake. Among these trails Lower Cascades leads to one of the most pristine waterfalls in the park with a picture-perfect swimming hole at the base. Bring a towel, book, or picnic and stay for a while at the stunning Lower Cascades.
