Clemmons Educational State Forest Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The destination not only has great trails, but also fine facilities for hands-on learning about forestry and the Piedmont environment. Plan to spend extra time enjoying the facilities, in addition to hiking around the forest pond and along one of the streams coursing through the forest. The last part of the hike takes the Talking Rock Trail, which explains the rocky underpinnings of the land.
The greater Raleigh area is fortunate to have North Carolina’s first state educational forest in its midst. Although Clemmons is primarily geared toward informing students about the Tar Heel State’s forests, the property, trails, and learning
opportunities are open to the public. This includes hiking trails with specific educational themes, such as the Talking Tree Trail, whereby visitors learn about the types of trees growing in the area, and the Talking Rock Trail, which explores the geological aspects of the land."
