Trails and Parks
“Something for everyone” is the best way to describe the more than 28 miles of publicly maintained trails on Beech Mountain. Elevate your recreation with an easy stroll through the woods, a fun and winding ride along Beech’s highest ridge, puddle jump down streams, take a picture at one of many vista points, feel the mist off of a magnificent mountain waterfall, or meander through old growth forests.
From mountain biking to hiking to cross country skiing and snowshoeing, the trails of Beech are sure to captivate you and your personal recreational desires!
Pick-up your trail map at the Buckeye Recreation Center for specific information on each individual trail. Maps are also available at the Visitor’s Center and Fred’s Mercantile.
The Buckeye Recreation Center is located next to Buckeye Lake at 1330 Pine Ridge Road.
