Please join us for our Second Saturday Outing at Cascade Nature Preserve in Oak Ridge
Visit this large tract of untouched land in Oak Ridge, a work-in-progress nature preserve that will feature around three miles of hiking trails upon its completion. Our host for the outing will be Roger Bardsley, a retired Guilford County staff member and local trails enthusiast. We will meet at the parking lot on Good Will Church Road at 10am and hike for about two hours. The parking lot is on the right going west on Goodwill Church Road less than a mile from the T-intersection near Linville Road. Cascades Preserve gets its provisional name due to a cascading stream on the 130-acre conservation area. For more information contact Piedmont Land Conservancy at No need to RSVP. Children and well-behaved pets welcome.
