Located by the High Rock Lake, the Eagle Point Nature Preserve sprawling over 200 acres of unspoiled land offers a perfect opportunity to enjoy watching the native birds while hiking through the nature trails meandering through the park. The area boasts of diverse forestry native to North Carolina and you can explore them via the three back to back loop trails spanning over three miles, namely the one-mile Plant loop Trail, 1.5-mile Goldeneye Trail and 2 miles Eagle Point Loop Trail. The trails are aptly marked with interpretative plant identification panels. The trail leading to the secluded coves is perfect for fat tire biking. Eagle Point Nature Preserve also offers canoeing and fishing in the High Rock Lake.

Eagle Point Nature Preserve Reviews & Ratings
My new favorite place to birdwatch. Very quiet and not super trafficked. Only downside is the bugs, but that's nature for you! Highly recommend!
Great place to take small kids for a bike ride. The hills are not too steep for small children.
Cant really say anything about the trails, only the canoe trail/launch.. there is a hanging cable that was installed to help get your canoe down long hill consisting of roots, falling trees, stumps etc. Vandals have destroyed that. The water is loaded with felled trees hard to manage around. LOTS of mud!!!.will search other sites.
I have been walking in here for 8 years about once every 2 weeks and am especially appreciative that there are no fishermen or boat parties smashing glass on shorelines or the trails, making it safe for dog paws. The park maintenance gentleman does a great job at keeping the trails cleared - even provides walking sticks at times at a stand in the parking area and had taken immediate care of a yellow jacket nest on a trail I had alerted him to. Walking the shoreline when the water receeds in winter is a great opportunity to pick up any plastic trash that has washed up from the lake and to see the great veins of slate in the ground. This park is an unspoiled treasure and I hope it stays that way. We have never picked up any ticks in here, nor have seen any snakes. We do stay on the wide trails and do not go into unmowed or brushy areas. Deer, turkey, herons, egrets, a bald eagle, and a box turtle now and then have been all we have seen.
Great trails. Well defined, loved the area.
