“About 40 mins from the property (on the other side of Boone), the park offers 4,300 acres to explore, including a small lake for hiking, fishing, and canoeing. The Boone Fork Loop Trail is a gorgeous longer 5.2 mi wooded hike with some inclines but a lot of flats that we personally love. This trail does have a few waterway crossings (some crossing using stepping stones) and a great view of Grandfather Mountain .”

Trail
“ It is free to access and open all days throughout the year. The emerald green forest filled with gnarly Beech trees, lush undergrowth, and small streams is the reason why this is a popular spot among nature enthusiasts and adventure seekers. From June through September, lift access to the Emerald Outback is available Friday through Sunday (for a fee) via the chairlift at Beech Mountain Resort. The resort’s lift includes trays to carry mountain bikes to the summit, with riders following closely behind in a traditional lift chair. Hikers can ride the lift as well.”
