Boone Area Hiking

Below are various walking and hiking trails in the Boone area that we recommend to our guests. Once you've booked your stay at the Lovill House Inn you can enjoy a great breakfast each morning before exploring the walking and hiking trails in the Boone area.

On-Property Hiking Trails

We have created several trails of varying difficulty on the 11 acres behind the Lovill House Inn.  You can take the moderate trail through the forest to the waterfall, a steeper trail half way up the mountain or hike to the top of the property where a rock outcropping and bear cave are located.  As the leaves fall the views of the Boone valley are even better! 

Greenway Trail

Easy - 2.9 mi

Perfect for walkers, joggers, and nature enthusiasts, the trail offers a peaceful escape from the bustle of the town while conveniently accessible just 10 minutes from the Inn.


Price Lake Trail

Easy - 2.1 mi

A serene and picturesque walking trail encircling nearby Price Lake. Take in the views with this easy, relaxing trail.


Cascade Falls

Easy - 1 mi

The cascading water and lush greens at Cascade Falls make this a popular destination, with options for more extensive hiking or a simple 1-mile walking loop. The site contains picnic tables and access to Tompkins Knob overlook!


Elk Knob State

Moderate- 3.8 mi

The Summit Trail at Elk Knob State Park is beautifully maintained and has a gorgeous payoff at the summit! The beginning of this trail is a bit steep, but mellows out to a moderately easy hike.
