We went to Love Valley after a local suggested we visit. We went to go relic hunting but couldn't locate the area where we were told to hunt. We checked out the rest of the town and found that this is a very unique place!...More

The only thing missing here was James Arnett and Festus and Miss Kitty. An old west town totally unexpected in North Carolina. No cars allowed here- only horses -I am serious- dirt roads and realistic saloons. Great heartland meals like catfish, brisket, BBQ, Carp fries,...More

What an unique little town. If you love horses you must visit Love Valley. Don't forget to bring your horse. Lots of hiking/riding trails.

We stopped during the early morning (10am) and it was a ghost town. It was a bit creepy but the few folks we met were pleasant.

Love Valley is a very informal place and there are lots of unpaved areas to ride horses. I doubt that shoes are required. Maybe you can call Miss Kitty's Boarding House and discuss details with them.
