Created in 1977 by local business and civic leaders Hampton Daughtry and David Settle, the Dauset Trails Nature Center is a 1,200-acre private nonprofit outdoor education and recreation area adjacent to Indian Springs State Park. The center offers more than 17 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails through a wooded piedmont landscape.
Dauset Trails offers nature exhibits, classrooms, picnic pavilions, a group campground, a lakeside chapel, and the Animal Trail, featuring native, non-releasable creatures in fenced habitats. The hiking route described is an excellent introduction to the center’s natural beauty.
