Bracken Preserve Trail

Background Info:

Bracken Preserve is a 395 acre property owned by the City of Brevard. It is home to a network of 9 miles of trails that connect Brevard to the Pisgah National Forest. Included in these trails are Brushy Creek Trail (2.95 mi), Pinnacle Trail (1.5 mi), and Bracken Mountain Trail (7.2 mi) any one of which might be the focus of any particular work day. The trek through Bracken Preserve offers picturesque views of a flowing river and a series of cascading waterfalls, along with abundant wildlife in the unique mountain cove habitats along the trail.

Previous Conserving Carolina volunteers aided in building Pinnacle trail, which officially opened to the public in 2019, and we would like to maintain their immaculate work. This volunteer work will have you maintaining an established trail while also getting in a great workout!

Workday Description:

During the workday, we will be removing worn out trail markers and mark new paint blazes on the 8 miles of hiking and biking trails at the Bracken Preserve. Participants may walk or ride (BYO mountain bike and skills).  Be prepared to mountain bike up to 8 miles or hike up to 4 miles.
