This forested 80-acre site contains a scenic gorge cut through by Clifty Creek, which flows into the Emory River here. The gorge slopes are very steep and almost vertical in some places.
Why TNC Selected This Site
A globally endangered plant, Virginia spirea, grows here and is scattered along the creek's rocky banks. The gorge is a hemlock-dominated, mixed mesophytic forest.
