Cottonwood Tree Trail

Cottonwood Tree Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Boone’s Cave Park is famous for its notable namesake: Boone’s Cave. But when you visit the park, you realize there’s more to see.

The Yadkin River borders the park to the west, and a canoe launch offers access to explore the waterway. There’s a campground, a picnic shelter, and an eighteenth-century log cabin. Over 5.0 miles of hiking trails lead through the forest and along the river’s edge. And the feature trail leads to the tallest Eastern Cottonwood Tree in the state. At 169 feet tall and 16 feet around, it’s an impressive sight."
