Collier Cove Nature Preserve

Collier Cove Nature Preserve is Buncombe County Recreation Services newest park.

The park was opened to the public in 2014.

This trailhead/parking area is located at 194 Rhododendron Drive in Arden, NC. There is limited parking and no restroom facilities are available.

The park consists of over 29 acres of hillside woodland with nearly 2 miles of well defined, steep and strenuous hiking trails. There are several areas with ample clearing, which provides beautiful views of the eastern Butler mountain Range.

Activities in the park include hiking, picnicking, and nature loving. Mountain biking is not allowed in the park as the trails have sharp turns and lack the width and visibility to accommodate hiking and biking without running the risk of user conflicts and accidents.
