Just outside the quaint little town of Blowing Rock, in a remote access area of Moses Cone Memorial Park, is the Bass Lake Loop Trail. As the name implies, the trail makes a circle around the lake. The wide gravel roadlike path is flat and easy to follow, and with each season that passes, the lake paints a new portrait for you to enjoy. The hike begins near the restrooms, which is convenient, because there’s a water fountain here, so you could fill up your drinking water. A trail map gives you a good picture of the other trails in the area, but if you’re staying on the Bass Lake Loop Trail, you don’t really need a map. The trail literally makes a loop around the lake, following the shoreline the entire way. The map shows that this is one of the original “carriage trails.”
