A short drive to a stunning view

On this week's CTW...

Dunn Mountain 11-13.jpg
Nov. 12, 2013 – Now is the time to make a trip to Dunn’s Mountain Nature and History Preserve, located just outside of Salisbury. Although small at 83 acres, it’s worth the stop to see the spectacular view from the top of the mountain. The panoramic scene includes two retired rock quarries, downtown Salisbury, and portions of the southwestern Piedmont.
 
You can hike the wide, gravel trail – about 3-tenths of a mile (less than a quarter mile) that winds up the side of the mountain or you can take a shuttle operated during the park’s operating hours.
 
In addition to the trail, picnic areas are available, as well as a blacksmith shop display. During the month of November, the park is open Fridays and Saturdays, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sundays from 12:30 to 5 p.m. Admission to Dunn’s Mountain Preserve is free.
 
For more information on Dunn’s Mountain Nature and History Preserve, located at 1740 Dunn's Mountain Road in Salisbury, visit www.rowancountync.gov.
