North Carolina - Cox Mountain and Fanny's Ford Trails


Cox Mountain Trail - The 3.75 mile loop trail passes beside the picnic area, down to the river and crosses the river on a suspension foot bridge. The trail climbs 270 feet in elevation from the river to the hilltop. A long steep climb and descent is required.

Fanny's Ford Trail - This trail is a 1.01-mile loop, add on to the Cox Mountain Trail. The hike is generally easy with gentle hills and flat terrain along the river.


Let's meet in the Few's Ford entrance off of Cole Mill Rd. Pass the Park Office and head to your left. There is a parking lot and picnic area at the end of this road. We will leave there promptly at 10:00 AM! Make sure you bring snacks and plenty of water! Get your NC State Park Passports stamped too!!!
