This hike is a circumambulation of Moses Cone Park’s prettiest lake. This is an easy, extremely scenic loop that, although unpaved, might be suitable for wheelchairs in dry weather. The Bass
Lake Loop is easiest from the lakeshore parking area below US 221.

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.”
