You might be content with the 42 miles of trail weaving along the three watershed lakes north of town. But then, you’d miss out on some of the other great opportunities nearby. The mellow taste of the Piedmont at Mayo River State Park, for instance. Or the mountainlike feel of Hanging Rock State Park. There’s more stellar lake hiking at the Piedmont Environmental Center in High Point. And would you believe there’s a wilderness area within an hour of downtown? You should, because there is.
