Much of this route winds through and alongside a vast magnolia swamp along with some spectacular ridge lines punctuated with interesting rock formations and some kettle holes and ponds. You’ll also get to see the spot where the Hermit of Gloucester, Mason A. Walton, built his cabin in 1884 and studied nature in these woods. Based on these experiences, he wrote several books, including A Hermit’s Wild Friends.
