Blowing Rock is a village mountain town nestled at the foot of The Blowing Rock, a barktastic rock formation from which the town gets its name. If you and your pooch love to explore the great outdoors, then Blowing Rock is your next stop. There are no vets within Blowing Rock, but the next closest clinic is only ten miles away in neighboring Banner Elk.
To kickstart your stay in Blowing Rock, a visit to the Moses H. Cone Memorial Park is a must (known simply as “Cone Park” by the locals). This commemorative estate was preserved in honor of Moses H. Cone who was a conservationist. Today, the country estate offers both visitors and locals a regional crafts shop, and over 25 miles of scenic hiking and walking trails that your pup is sure to be excited about!
Venture even further and take Fido for an easy 1.5 hour hike around the spawtacular Price Lake on the Price Lake Loop Trail. It’s pawfect for pups who love to take a refreshing dip! When you make it back down to Blowing Rock town center, woof down a yummy specialty sandwich at the pawpular Town Tavern.
