Haw River State Park Iron Ore Belt

Located in the northern Piedmont Triad region, picturesque terrain makes Haw River State Park the perfect place to connect with nature. The traditional state park amenities of hiking, picnicking and nature viewing are now available at the Iron Ore Belt Acess (Day Use Area) side of Haw River State park.


Haw River State Park was authorized by the General Assembly in 2003. The Haw River headwaters area was among 12 sites in North Carolina identified as a potential state park in the system’s 2003 New Parks for a New Century initiative. With the continued assistance of public and private conservation partners, the park has grown in size, bringing the current park holdings to 1,425 acres. 

Located a short drive away, within this natural setting is The Haw River State Park Summit Environmental Education and Conference Center, N.C. State Park’s first residential environmental education center. Along with environmental education programming, The Summit Center offers conference center facilities for groups ranging in size from 10 to 180.
