Outdoor Adventures in Blowing Rock, North Carolina

  • The second-oldest river in the world—The headwaters of the middle fork of the New River start just a few miles up the road from Mystery Hill, and its waters run right through our property. At over 320 miles long and over 360 million years old, this river is stocked with native brown and rainbow trout. Fishing, wading, and tubing are all allowed.
  • Sterling Greek Park and the Middle Fork Greenway Trail—One of several parks along the Middle Fork Greenway Trail, this trail will soon connect Boone and Blowing Rock with a paved biking and walking trail. There are picnic tables and river access, and everything is open to the public.

Other outdoor adventures include our butterfly pavilion, observation tower, and petting farm! Get out and explore the property surrounding Mystery Hill by renting bikes, fishing equipment, or pedal carts. When the heat gets to be too much, come inside and check out some of our fun and exciting indoor attractions.

You won’t soon forget about the outdoor adventures you have nestled in the lush, green, and beautiful mountains at Mystery Hill! Buy your tickets today or give us a call to find out what you can do outside at our location.
