The Blue Valley Experimental Forest contains approximately 1,400 acres of primarily white pine trees with hardwoods mixed in. Miles of hiking trails with breathtaking long-range views await as you explore the depths of this “road less traveled.” Several waterfalls can be found within this area, and the Glen Falls Trail leads you to three of them—talk about a bang for your buck. Be sure to carry a map and compass or a great guidebook, such as Hiking Waterfalls in North Carolina (FalconGuides, 2011), before going too far off the beaten path.
