Cedarock Park

Cedarock Park is a 500-acre Alamance County Park south of Burlington.  The land that is now the park was once farmland.  An old grist mill, dating to the early 1800s, was long Rock Creek, but only the dam still remains.  The park was established in the early 1970s on the historical farm of John and Polly Garrett.  Today, the park features a historical farm, two disc gold courses, a scenic waterfall over an old mill dam, and an network of hiking and equestrian trails.
