Lake James

Lake James is a fantastic day for a day trip from Winston-Salem. 


Lake James is located at: 

7321 NC Hwy 126

Nebo, NC 28761


It's a short drive at 2 hours from Winston-Salem. 



We brought our 16 month old and a baby carrier. He did well and was happy! 


Lake James has a variety of trails which accommodate hiking, mountain biking, swimming, boating, and more. 


You can find out which one you'd like to hike by going to their website, here



We got a little lost trying to find the Short Off Mountain trail but we found a beautiful pond as a result of our happy mistake. 


When you decide on a trail, make sure to find a description of where you should park your car and start the trail. 



For the Short Off Mountain Trail, you will turn off the main road and drive down a long dirt road (it will seem too long, but keep going) the road ends at a small dirt parking lot that wraps in a circle around a few trees. The trail entrance is right there with a sign made of wood. 



If you're in the mood for a local craft beer afterwards, Fonta Flora in Morgantown, North Carolina has unique local beer. 


 Enjoy the hike, sunshine, and beautiful views,
