Occoneechee Mountain State Natural Area reviews
Nice park! Trails are well maintained. The lookout makes an interesting stopping point. This is a great park for a hike with your dog. There are some steep trails, a lookout, some history lessons, and 2 ponds. There is traffic noise from Rt 85 that kind of takes away from the natural setting.
Great trails! The quarry overlook was awesome and unexpected. There are a variety of trails to choose from, some are easy while others are considered hard but none were too difficult. Absolutely recommend this park to anyone.
