This 3.7-acre park will eventually become a part of the Middle Fork Greenway, a walking trail that connects the towns of Blowing Rock and Boone. Picnic tables and benches can be found along the creek, with lots of wildflowers, birdhouses, and fishing spots to enjoy. Walk along this 1-mile segment of the Greenway and you'll reach Mystery Hill and Tweetsie Railroad. 

Directions from Boone - Travel 3.5 miles south toward Blowing Rock on Highway 321. At Tweetsie Railroad, get into the middle lane. Before Mystery Hill, give a left turn signal. Just past Mystery Hill, turn left across the highway onto Whitener Mountain Road. Immediately take a sharp right leading down to the small gravel parking lot that provides spaces for 4 vehicles.

Check out our Middle Fork Greenway Trail Guide for more detailed information about the trail.
