Moses Cone Park’s 3,500 acres are quite simply one of the Parkway’s best places to pause—in part because Cone Park so well exemplifies the tourism tradition of the mountains and in particular the surrounding region. This is the heart of the North Carolina High Country resort area, and the village of Blowing Rock is its crown. This eTrail includes eight hike options, Figure Eight Trail, Flat Top Road, Bass Lake Loop Hike, Moses Cone Manor House Circuit Hike, The Maze Loop, Watkins Road Circuit Hikes, The Rich Mountain Trail, and Trout Lake Loop and Rich Mountain Carriage Road.
