Hikers will have the opportunity to visit Walnut Creek Preserve, a 2,100-acre private equestrian conservation community located near Lake Lure. Participants will enjoy traversing the maturing forest with numerous streams, as well as open, grassy knolls that offer beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. The Preserve is private land and the public is only allowed on the property by invitation, so take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the serenity of this beautiful property.

Conserving Carolina is sponsoring a free, guided hike on SATURDAY this fall, open to the public. Hikers should plan to return to the area in the late afternoon, time varying with group size, distance of hike.
