"This hike takes you from a Civil War–era iron furnace through one of the finest suburban developments of the 20th century to a commercial village in the midst of a 21st-century update. You’ll not only see landscaped yards stocked with imported Southern classics like camellias, azaleas, and cherry trees, but you’ll also enjoy natural areas with unexpected native botanical variety. Grand homes are on display throughout. They come in a variety of sizes and styles, but they’re consistently attractive and well cared for."
