Explore a large tract of land featuring varied habitats overlain on one of the largest and most historic plantations in the Piedmont. Your hike first takes you through ecologically significant prairie then curves back along a stream. You then follow this watershed as it cuts a deep hollow before returning up yet another stream. Wellgraded and new singletrack paths make hiking here nearly idyllic.
