One of my favorite escapes in the entire Piedmont, this trail meanders through forest and meadows. It passes by a stately Federal-era plantation house and comes within a few feet of the Old Trading Path used by Native Americans and European settlers hundreds of years ago. My favorite thing to do here is picnic by a pond that offers picturesque hills covered with majestic hardwoods in the background.
