Park Description
Located along Moccasin Creek at the Johnston-Nash County line, Flower Hill is a unique system of north-facing bluffs supporting a large stand of Catawba rhododendron and a great diversity of other wildflowers. Flower Hill is believed to be North Carolina's easternmost naturally occurring stand of Catawba rhododendron, growing far from its normal mountain range. Heavily visited the first two weekends in May; TLC traditionally leads a hike the weekend before Mother's Day.

Follow US 64 East to US 264 East. Continue for about 2 miles and exit on NC 39. Go south (right) on NC 39 for 6 miles to NC 231. Turn east (left) on NC 231 and proceed to intersection of NC 231 and Flower Hill Road (about 3 miles). Park on the right shoulder of NC 231 beyond Flower Hill Road. Walk up Flower Hill Road to the trail entrance. Be very careful on Flower Hill Road, as traffic tends to come quickly down the hill.
