Boone's Cave Park is located in western Davidson County.  The park is 100 acres and offers hiking trails through a secluded rolling forest of mixed hardwoods reminiscent of the North Carolina Mountains.  Forty-six acres of the park are designated as a Natural Hertiage Site and are host to a number of wildflowers normally found only in the Appalachian Mountains.

The park has a picnic shelter with a great view of the Yadkin River.  Steps provide access to the Yadkin river for fishing and canoing.

As you hike along trails be on the look out for one of nearly fifty native wildflowers.

Be sure to bring your binocalurs to catch a glimpse of our spring and fall migrant birds.

Boone's Cave Park is also home to all types of wildlife: Squirrels, Raccons, Deer, Wild Turkey, Reptiles, and Amphibians.

North Carolinas' prized Eastern Cottonwood tree 169 feet tall, the trunk is 16 fee around, and the canopy is 109 feet wide. The Cottonwood tree is located along the shore of the Yadkin River.

There is a canoe/kayak access trail from the parking lot to river, to make easier to lauch or carry out from the river.
