Rich in history, this 1,862-acre park has scenic vistas, rolling pastures and woodlands. Look into a bygone era by touring the Mount Bleak House and see how a middle-class farm family of the 1860s lived. Nature and history programs are offered during the spring, summer and fall. Hiking, picnicking, fishing, and primitive hike-in camping for families and groups are favorite activities in this peaceful getaway on the eastern side of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
The park offers six miles of bridle trails and 14 miles of hiking trails, which access the Appalachian Trail.
