Boone's Cave Park


category : Parks
The cave is a granite formation along the Yadkin River, just southwest of Lexington. Little is truthfully known about Daniel Boone. A local historian writes that Daniel Boone left his family at a Quaker settlement in the Shenandoah Valley in 1751 and with his friend, Henry Miller, went to the Yadkin Valley to explore and hunt. In the fall of 1772, he returned with his family and spent the fall and winter in a cave above the river. They spent the following 5-6 months building a 2-room log house with an attic and a stone basement. A replica of this house stands on the same spot as the original cabin on a cannonball of a knoll above the river. The Boones had cleared enough timber from the knoll and surrounding slope to provide a 360-degree area of observation. Today, the 110-acre day-use park offers a hiking trail, river fishing and picnicking areas. Boone's Cave State Park is located on Highway 150-S near Churchland, NC. See North Carolina's fifth tallest tree-an Eastern Cottonwood, 154 feet tall. Several large rock outcrops that serve as canoe rest stops along the Yadkin River Canoe Trail.
