Brush Creek Preserve

The Nature Conservancy’s 124-acre Brush Creek Preserve is a popular destination in West Virginia’s Mercer County.

Visitors to the preserve will enjoy a wide foot trail that traverses the preserve and leads to the mouth of Brush Creek and the river. Adjacent to the preserve lies Brush Creek Falls, the largest falls in southern West Virginia and owned by the State of West Virginia.

Brush Creek boasts many uncommon species, including white cedar…

Canada yew...

...and Canby's mountain-lover. 

A trail that parallels Brush Creek and the Bluestone River is a great place to see the dramatic limestone and sandstone cliffs and migrating birds like the hooded warbler (pictured here), which can be found nesting at the preserve each spring.

The Nature Conservancy invites you to explore this preserve and support our conservation efforts.
