"Bakers Mountain Park"

Located at the highest point of elevation in Catawba County, Bakers Mountain Park is a 189 acre park featuring mature Chestnut Oak forest and 6 miles of hiking trails.   This is a nice place for a picnic and a hike.  The trails take you past two old home sites and lead to an observation platform at the summit.  The rangers here are wonderful.  The Eastern King Snake that lives in the park office is a big hit with our kids.

The hike to the summit can be a bit steep in places.  There's an informational sign at the summit with points of interest labeled.  

My girls love exploring the old home sites.  One is just a chimney while the other has some of the foundation stones and a memorial constructed by a local Boy Scout Troop.  The signs at this site gives hikers information about the family who lived in the home.
