Price Lake Loop Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Your dog will love you for this hike, and you can give yourself a pat on the head as well for embarking on this trail. Price Lake Trail encircles 47-acre Price Lake in the middle of Julian Price Memorial Park. Although manmade, Price Lake is a pristine, sparkling jewel that perfectly complements its rugged mountain surroundings.
It sits in the high country of western North Carolina near the towns of Boone and Blowing Rock on the Blue Ridge Parkway. In addition to the postcard-pretty lake, the 4300-acre park offers the largest—and possibly the most scenic—campground on the parkway, open May through October with 180 sites, a large picnic area, trout fishing, non-motorized boating, and access to many hiking trails in the imposing shadow of Grandfather Mountain."
