Walk / Hike / Bike…Your choice! Lake Leatherwood City Park is just 10 minutes from downtown – 5 minutes from the Tall Pines – and has over 25 miles of trails. Flat, paved ones and rocky, hilly, narrow tracks. You’ll enjoy cool springs, historic stone walls and bridges, and unusual rock formations. It’s beautiful all-year-round and very lush and green right now. Robert and I were there this weekend; he mountain biked and I hiked.
