A Multifaceted Approach
In the photo above is one of the 5 entrances to a 3-mile tree-canopied trail for equestrians, hikers and ATV enthusiasts. The trail connects two water creek sheds, provides access for fence maintenance and doubles as a defense space for the fire fighters in the event of a fire.
Twenty acres of forest with brush and small trees were modified for wildlife habitat as well as for wildlife viewing. Several deer stands, deer feeders and food plots are within.
Equestrians have jumps and small creeks to ford, narrow allies of yaupons, red cedars to admire with diameters as big as dinner tables and cathedral like spaces held up by 100+ feet tall pin oaks. All within a three mile hike or ride!
