Moses Cone Memorial Park Professional Review and Guide
"More than 25 miles of road-width carriage paths wander lightly on the land, creating easy avenues for carefree strolls. At times, they corkscrew mysteriously—one section is called The Maze. These paths are perfect for families and become Nordic nirvana to cross-country skiers. Snow hikers should help preserve smooth skiing conditions by starting a walker’s path and not walking in ski tracks.
Cone Park attracts many horseback riders, so you’ll find yourself stepping around reminders of equine passage. Bicycles, however, are prohibited on the trails. Within Cone Park’s trail system, junctions are many and can be confusing. These recommended hikes carefully describe directions, but use the map to create more. The lakes of Cone and neighboring Price Parks are one of the mountains’ best places for a “golden pond” experience. There’s nothing like a lakeshore hike through a hissing breeze, fluttering leaves, and golden high- altitude summer light."
