Historic Yates Mill County Park Professional Review and Guide

"This hike not only explores historic and photogenic Yates Mill and its adjacent pond, but also nearby wetlands, tributaries, and hills on well-marked and maintained foot trails. The nature center here is worth a visit too.

Yates Mill County Park truly deserves the “Historic” moniker at the beginning of its name, for it is the only operating mill left in Wake County of the seventy that were once scattered throughout the district. A mill, dam, and pond were first located here at Steep Hill Creek back in the mid-1700s, when North Carolina was still a British colony."
