Description

The Bull Hole Park Trail is a short natural surface trail that leads to the banks of the South Yadkin River through the Bull Hole River Park, a 30-acre park. It is in Rowan and Davie Counties.

“The Bull Hole” features an impressive stone dam, a sandy beach deposited there by a flood, and good fishing in the spring and fall. Bring your bathing suit to swim and ride the little rapids – but you’re urged to wear an old pair of tennis shoes in the river because of the granite bedrock bottom, known for its slippery moss. Please note: swim at your own risk as there is no lifeguard. Visit NC Website

Mountain Creek, Park: New Park in Catawba County Built on Partnership
Along the shores of Lake Norman in Catawba County, N.C., the sounds of osprey, red-bellied woodpeckers and cicadas now mingle with the joyful squeals of children, friendly greetings from hikers and the whoosh of mountain bikes zipping by. Catawba County’s newest public park has been over 15 years in the making, and it is finally open.

Trail Tips

Ride Safe
When biking, wear a helmet and use a bell to signal your approach to other trail users. Consider bringing a spare tube and pump so that you can fix a flat tire and offer help to other cyclists in need. When riding on roads, bike in the same direction as traffic.
