My boyfriend and I are runners, but do not often choose to trail run. I would however recommend these trails for running, as they are well maintained. The surface is mostly packed dirt with few rocks and very few roots or other trip hazards. Really...More

Nice historic mansion with lots of history. High end local crafts available for purchase at the entry of the home. You can also walk the grounds. Beautiful Views!

This park is a nice rest point while cruising the parkway. The old mansion is gorgeous and they views from the porch and grounds are beautiful.

This place is beautiful. The lake offers a .09 loop that is a flat crush and run surface, perfect for a walk or run. Or take the 2 mile hike/walk/run up a gravel road to the Mansion. The view from the Cone Mansion is worth...More

Had a wonderful time staying at Chetola and walking to Bass Lake at Moses Cone park. We drove to the Moses Cone house this year instead of walking because relatives were regretfully unable to make the hike. The house and its surroundings make for some...More

I wouldn't assume that use of a metal detector would be OK. Probably best to call 1st.

The quickest is the Deer Park trail. If you take the Maze toward the Apple Barn and then turn left onto Watkin Road you can also get there, but it is much further.
