What is there to do?

Located in western Davidson Country, Boones Cave Park is a proper rustic, wild and impressive landscape with the eponymous cave great for exploration. Sounds fun!

Within the 100 acres of the park there are a host of hiking trails, and the surrounding environment is packed with wildlife and wild flowers. You might just want to take your camera!

In fact, Boones Cave park has around 8 miles of trails which still look the same as they did 200 years ago when backcountry settlers roamed the area, and possibly Daniel Boone himself!

Did you know that forty six acres of the park are actually designated as a National Heritage Site? It's here you will spot a host of wildflowers that are normally only found in the Appalachian Mountains. Pretty cool!

There is a canoe and kayak access point from the main parking lot to the river so you can vary the method of expedition, but there are no rentals available. Still, the river is a super fun way to explore the park!

Fishing is also a popular pastime on the river.

It's worth making a stop to visit the famous East cottonwood Tree on the Yadkin River, a whopping 169ft tall!

Don't forget to stop at the cave itself. It's said that Daniel Boone and his family used the cave, but it hasn't been confirmed. Yet, fun to think about!

A fun, fascinating, mysterious and nature filled day out in North Carolina for all!
