“A great and easy nature trail for families. There are also remnants of old settlements here.”— Max Willner
Family Friendly This is a wonderful nature trail; it's an easy hike, and the remains of the settlements here offer a great lesson in Appalachian history.
Soon, hikers will find the remains of an old homesite. There are still foundations and walls standing there, a testament to time from long ago.
About 1.5 miles in is a small footbridge that crosses a creek. At 1.9 miles, the trail comes to an end (hikers can take a small loop trail known as the Noah Bud Ogle Place Nature Trail).
As for local fauna, black bears are common in the area, along with white-tailed deer and 31 species of salamanders.
Birdwatchers can spot a variety of species, notably the northern flicker (Colaptes auratus) and red-eyed vireo (Vireo olivaceus).
For more information on black bears, refer to this webpage.
