Explore this first-rate preserve harboring unique Piedmont habitat, now nestled in the heart of Cary. A kid-friendly nature center presents programs that enhance the well-marked and maintained trails sightseeing the state preserve, from the bluffs clad in eastern hemlock to wildflower-filled flats to oak-topped hills. Hemlock Bluffs Nature Preserve has arguably the best laid out, marked, and maintained trail system in the greater Triangle area. You will be amazed at the wide mulch paths complemented by elaborate stairs on several steep sections. Other portions of pathway have uber-sturdy boardwalks over wetlands. Sumptuous overlook decks enhance the footpaths.
