Lyle Creek Adventure. Claremont NC.
This is child friendly.... a good family outing.
Less than 1 mile EASY walk.

From Hickory NC, easily accessable from I 40.......travel East on HWY 70 through the Cities of Conover and Claremont. A short ways east of Claremont you will find CONNOR PARK on the left. This is a lovely park with picnic tables.... you brought a picnic lunch, right ????............ and a trail beside LYLE CREEK. Follow the trail and the creek to BUNKER HILL COVERED BRIDGE. Please take a few minutes to read information provided about this and other covered bridges in North Carolina. It is quite informative and interesting. Here you will also see 2 historic monuments that commemerate the bridge. Walk through the bridge and notice the WARNING to travelers sign on top of the entry from the East. Very cool ! Enjoy this lovely view for a few moments before crossing back through the bridge. As you exit the bridge, take an immediate turn to the right and follow a narrow trail beside the creek for about 25 steps..... Turn to your left and go up the slope about another 25 steps. You will see 2 trees with a snake like vine hanging from them. Beneath these trees...... is the best place to catch a Lyle Creek fish !!!
This is our first planted letterbox ! Hope you enjoy !
PLEASE BE SURE TO BRING YOUR OWN INK !!
HAPPY BOXING !!
