Park has many trails, some close to Catawba river for scenic viewing. All moderate to easy. Nice picnic setting with large covered pavilion and grills and parking close by.

One of Catawba County's 'secret' gems! Spent a couple hours having a picnic then hiking with a group of friends on a lovely Spring afternoon. Numerous picnic sites, some right by the Catawba River. Well-cleared and well-marked hiking trails of varying degrees. Most are moderate....More
