Cedar Falls Park

Looking for another place to run recently, I decided to check out Cedar Falls Park.  It's a pretty nice little park located on the Reedy River in Fork Shoals. There are plenty of trails to run or walk on and nice waterfalls. It's located on the site of an old saw mill and contains on old damn as well.

Parker-Binns Estates and Mountain Brook Vineyards

I've written previously about a number of different wineries nearby, including the Overmountain Vineyard and the Green Creek Winery. Near these two, there are two others that recently opened. The one closest to Overmountain is Mountain Brook Vineyard, a small winery (possibly the smallest you've ever seen) housed in an old two story house. Although it's small, they've won several awards in the short time they've been in business. 

Just a few miles from there is a really impressive winery called Parker-Binns Estates. It's a beautiful landscape with a small farm, flower garden and two wood fired ovens where the owners cook pizza for their guests. 


Wilkins House

So the Wilkins House has been saved and successfully moved to its new home on Elm St.
