Haw River State Park

Located in the northern Piedmont Triad region, picturesque terrain makes Haw River State Park the perfect place to connect with nature. Housed within this natural setting is The 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.
 

Iron Ore Belt Access
The more traditional side of Haw River State Park is found at the Iron Ore Belt Access. A picnic area is located adjacent to the parking lot while a second picnic pad is found halfway along the Great Blue Heron Loop trail. Additional picnic areas and trails will be brought online in the near future.
