Cedarock Park offers a mini-weekend escape between the Triad and Triangle. Pitch your tent, then check out the several miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, paddle on Rock Creek (no boat, no problem: there are canoe and kayak rentals), play disc golf on not one but two 18-hole courses (the open fairway Cedarock Course and the wooded Wellsprings Course), go fishing or explore the restored 19th Century historical farm.
