A hiking trail network that is picturesque and diverse covers more than 18 miles and leads to mountain views, rock outcrops, waterfalls and even a mountain cave. Rounding out the fare are a mountain biking network and a wheelchair-accessible exploration.
Enjoy riding your mountain bike on single track, with rock ledges, fast flow, stream crossings, and great views of the Sauratown Mountains. Four trails offer 8.4 miles of intermediate riding—Land of the Lost, Major Tom, Original Loop, and North Side trails. Hiking is also allowed on the trails, although hikers should yield to mountain bikers using this trail. All trails begin at the parking lot next to “The Farmhouse” located at 2700 Moore’s Springs Rd. Westfield, NC 27053. Advanced and beginner level trails are being developed now and will be constructed in the near future.
The Hanging Rock State Park TRACK Trail adventures are for use on the park’s Upper Cascades Trail. The trail to the Rock Garden is a paved 0.1 mile walk (0.2 miles round-trip). The trail to the Upper Cascade Falls is a 0.2 mile walk (0.4 miles round-trip) on crushed rock. The entire TRACK Trail is 0.6 miles round-trip.
