Latta Plantation Trail

Latta Plantation Trail Professional Review and Guide

"We hike for many reasons. One is to explore the unknown, such as a rare Piedmont prairie. You wouldn’t know it today, but prairies were once common throughout the Piedmont.

With a few small exceptions, those Piedmont prairies have long since disappeared, but efforts are underway to restore the grasslands in a few remnant locations. One of those locations is at Latta Plantation Nature Preserve. The preserve has 16 miles of trail, but only one prairie, which the 4 miles described here circumnavigate."
