Park
“Hidden Lakes, on McCrory Lane, right near I-40,(6 miles from cabin) includes short hiking trails with great views and ....guess what...HIDDEN LAKES! along the trails. It also has an interesting history of an old hotel(you can still see the remains) where people in the 1940's would go. After dinner they would hike to the top where there was a marble laid dance floor and dance the night away under the stars. Unfortunately the marble has disappeared but there is still a beautiful view from the top of the mountain.”
