Your Visit to Blowing Rock
A visit to Blowing Rock is a treat in Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall. Whether it is simply the relaxing village atmosphere, the unique shops, the mountains, the skiing, the hiking trails, the arts, or the beautiful family-friendly downtown park, your visit to Blowing Rock is guaranteed to be a rewarding experience. While skiing rules in the winter (late November through mid-March), the warm weather provides a variety of special activities: Art in the Park, relaxing walks around town and the more challenging hiking at the Glen Burney Trail (within the village next to the Annie Cannon Gardens) and the four mile Bass Lake/Maze Trail located at the Moses H. Cone Memorial Park, just a hop, skip and jump outside the village limits.
