McDowell Nature Preserve Trail Combo 2

Charlotte, North Carolina

McDowell Nature Preserve: Trail Combo 2 Professional Review and Guide

"After checking out the preserve’s nature center, access this loop hike—a great trail for birding—that connects three popular trails. Preserve volunteers have established an abundance of bird boxes to help promote avian life in the surrounding forest. After exploring the hardwood forest around the nature center, the trail follows alongside a small creek with a rocky streambed, reminiscent of streams in the farther west Appalachian Mountains. The short pathis a nice warmup trail in the morning. It starts out with a gradual climb and then, after reaching the stream and following level ground, encounters several challenging hills that really get the blood pumping before you return to the nature center."
