  • Great place to hike. Pay attention to hours open. Take bug spray. The gravel is full of no-see-ums and their bites can itch like crazy!  more »
  • It’s a beautiful forest and a wonderful spring walk. The trails off to the side of the main road means you can add more miles to the round trip. Bring water. We were too early for bugs.  more »

  • Excellent hiking, biking and history First, if you're visiting, take your trail bike. With limited operating hours on few days, you'll cover this expansive historical and nature center much faster. It's a 2.5 mile walk down a Jeep road, with easy biking, to reach the main ruin site That said, there's plenty of history, nature, wildlife, and conservation to appreciate. Once a clear-cut working cotton farm, nature has taken back the space and rebuilding a Maritime forest. Plus, the presence of a few remaining giant oaks that were left standing from the 1800s means there are some trees 400-1,000 years old. Trails are well maintained, and volunteers are helpful and proud of the site. If you love nature and a great conservation story, be sure to visit. I just wish we had gone earlier and brought our bikes!
  • Property owned by my 4X Great Grandfather. Couldn't have been better.
