Cane Creek Mountains Natural Area Now Open!

Cane Creek Mountains Natural Area is a new nature park that provides public access to Alamance County’s largest state-significant natural heritage area. Hikers will enjoy rolling piedmont hills, abundant creeks and streams, and some of the best views in the County.

Cane Creek Mountains Natural Area is located in the Cane Creek Mountains Range, a Piedmont Monadnock range that covers much of the southwest quadrant of Alamance County. The mountain range is also home to the highest peak in North Carolina east of Greensboro at 987 feet.

Phase I of the park, including the first hiking trails, is now open. The development of the park will continue over the next several years. Upon completion, the Cane Creek Mountains Natural Area will total over 1,000 acres and include an observation tower, camping facilities, wildlife observation areas, and more.

Cane Creek Mountains Natural Area is located at: 5075 Bass Mountain Rd, Snow Camp, NC 27349.
