Fox Den Loop Hike

Late afternoon at Lake James State Park

Fox Den Loop Hike

It’s early summer and there’s no better time or place to enjoy the cooler mornings than the Fox Den Loop Trail. We’ll be looking at wildflowers, trees, insects, birds and anything else that may be out and about. If we’re lucky, we might even catch a glimpse of the red foxes that gave the trail its name. Meet Ranger Jamie Cameron for this moderate, 2-1/4-mile hike at the Catawba River Area picnic shelter at 9 a.m. Wear clothing and footwear that will be appropriate for the weather forecast.
