This mellow loop trail leads to a beaver pond along Nancy Town Creek, as well as Nancy Town Falls, a secluded, 20-foot cascade. The trail takes you through diverse habitat, from your typical pine-hardwood mix to clearer areas of oaks and hickory trees to creekside corridors of mountain laurel and rhododendron.
