Follow This 3/4-Mile Trail In North Carolina To A Hidden Cave, A River, And Baptism Rock

If you’re itching to take a hike in North Carolina, you’ll find trails with interesting sights all over the Tar Heel State. But caves? Not so much. Except for the state’s only public cavern for touring, only a few caves are on record and found along our scores of hiking trails. One of them, Boone’s Cave, is historically significant as the spot where Daniel Boone’s family squatted their first winter residing in what is now North Carolina in 1751.

Load up the kids or the grand kids and head over to Lexington for a little hiking and a lot of learning. Learn more about the trail with a visit to our friends at
