On Saturday, October 21st the park will be hosting the 10th annual Medoc Trail Races. Over 500 runners will be utilizing all of the hiking trails for the majority of the day so out of safety concerns we are not allowing mountain bike traffic on the trails until the event is over. The hiking trails will remain open during the event and visitors not associated with the races should park in the Visitor Center parking lot and access the hiking trails from the Bear Swamp Trail. If you have any questions please contact the park.Posted on: Sunday, October 15, 2017 - 7:28pm
Winding along creeks, ridges, and through the forests, the trails are the best way to appreciate the beauty and diversity of Medoc Mountain. Seven trails wander through a variety of terrain and provide more than 10 miles of hiking. Most of the trails are easy or moderate in difficulty, and trail scenery includes an artesian well, granite outcroppings and miniature rapids.
Bridle Trails: For those who prefer horseback, approximately 10 miles of bridle trails travel through rolling terrain and follow a portion of beautiful Little Fishing Creek. Bridle trailhead parking is available just off Medoc Mountain Road. All visitors with horses must be able to provide proof of a negative equine infectious anemia (Coggins) test while visiting North Carolina State Parks.
