Cove Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Following the edge of a long, narrow cove on the eastern edge of Lake Wylie, you’ll enjoy stunning views while the dogs have several opportunities to splash around in the clear green water.

At the southeastern edge of the queen city of Charlotte, and nestled along the banks of Lake Wylie, the McDowell Nature Preserve gets you back to nature without you ever leaving the city. Visitors enjoy a nature center, campground, fishing piers, picnicking, and playgrounds. With 8.0 miles of hiking and two boat ramps at Copperhead Island, there’s something for everyone."
