Jordan Lake State Recreation Area: Blue Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Th e 14,000-acre park has more than 22 miles of hiking trails, and the New Hope Overlook area is on the southwest side of the park near Moncure, North Carolina. Th e New Hope Overlook area has two trails, the Red Trail and the Blue Trail. Th is hike follows the Blue Trail, which off ers excellent views of Jordan Lake. Th e route traverses a mature hardwood forest and crosses several tributary creeks, climbing over a couple of hills in the beginning of the trail and climaxing with a challenging climb of an exceptionally steep hill at the very end of the trail."
