“A somewhat dense, singletrack Nature Conservancy trail with some nice views in a quiet cove.”— Jeffrey Edmonds
The west-facing slopes feature a number of open rocky glades, featuring such flora as little bluestem, a prairie grass, and abundant fringe tree, also known as grandfather's beard. Some of the trees on the western slopes that are exposed show a noticeable dwarfing, likely cause by the prevalent winds.
Conservancy staff and volunteers will maintain the 5.5-mile trail for visitors. The preserve falls within the project area of the Conservancy's Piedmont Program.
