Protected Lands

More than 8000 acres, located on East Fork Rd. just a few miles from Ash Grove are going to be permanently protected, thanks to owner Charles Taylor, who sold the land to The Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy and The Conservation Fund.  The groups hope to sell the land to North Carolina for recreation use.
When we first moved here, there were no "No Trespassing" signs on the property, so we frequently played in one of the waterfalls.  Unfortunately, the property has been off limits the past couple of years.  Here are some photos of East Fork Falls.
We are looking forward to being able to go there again!
