Public Meeting #1 – April 26, 2017

Please join us on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, at the Arts Place of Stokes / Stokes County Arts Council in Danbury for our first public input session. The purpose of Public Meeting #1 is to gain further perspective from the community regarding appropriate uses on the Moores Springs and Vade Mecum properties as well as aspirations for the future implementation.

This event will be open house style and we invite you to stop by anytime between 4pm and 7pm. We will have maps for you to look at, there will be opportunities to voice your opinion about existing buildings at the old Camp Sertoma site and we want to hear your thoughts on what activities are appropriate (or not) in this new section of the park.

Going forward, there will be 2-3 more public engagement meetings during the next 4 months where you will have the opportunity to make your voice heard and to provide input on the master plan. The next meeting will be June 29 at the Walnut Cove Library from 4-7pm.

  1. That area is truly a gem for North Carolina and I would love to see additional hiking and mountain bike trails for our youth — i’m 60 years old and I have been mountain biking for 20 years and I think it’s the best sport in the world. Simply because of the combonation of outdoors and exercise.

  2. I travel to this park for the climbing, both bouldering and roped, mountain biking, and as it’s the closest to me where I feel like I am hiking and swimming in the mountains. This place accomplishes all of the above in a beautifully unique, balanced way and all are very important to me to retain as park plans move forward.


  3. The inclusion of the Moore’s Springs Trails into the expansion of Hanging Rock State Park has given all of us an opportunity to enjoy an area that might not have been available to us.. Hats off to the individuals who saw fit to include mountain biking into the list of more traditional uses already available at his beautiful public space.
    Going forward I would love to see and be a part of further expansion of the trails for mountain biking and running
