A New Park!

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

Cane Creek Mountains Natural Area will be 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.

The park will include an observation tower, trailhead, hiking trails, and camping facilities. Phase one of the park, including the first hiking trails, is expected to open in summer 2020.
