Brushy Face Preserve Trail Grand Opening
The trail at Brushy Face Preserve is 0.7 miles one way from Pineland Drive to US-28. It is considered of moderate difficulty due to changes in elevation. The trail begins west of US-28 with a view of Satulah's western cliffs. It winds for 1.4 miles roundtrip across Clear Creek and through fern glades, rhododendron thickets, and buckberry patches.
Parking is available along Pineland Drive.
Free snacks and drinks will be available all day. Lunch will be available from 11 AM to 1:30 PM.
Several special craft stations will be spaced out along the trail. They will have fun, short crafts and games to take part in.
For those who are interested, an HCLT-led group will take a challenging 5.4 mile long hike from Brushy Face Preserve, HCLT's newest property, up to and back from the summit of Satulah Mountain Preserve, HCLT's oldest. The hike will leave shortly after the opening remarks at 10 AM and take several hours. There will be several sections of steep hiking, in addition to shallow stream crossings and uneven footing. Please bring water, lunch, and good shoes. It is not recommended for children!
