The "Striped Maple" provides an opportunity to live in harmony with nature among towering poplars and oaks and surrounded by magical and forever wild conserved forest. Selective clearing will open up southeastern views of the spectacular Hickory Nut Gorge toward Lake Lure. Private neighborhood hiking trails begin at the edge of the property and connect to the Upper Hickory Nut Gap Trail System, including Little Bearwallow Falls, John Myers Rock & Ice Climbing Area, Wildcat Rock, Bearwallow Mountain, and Florence Nature Preserve. Neighbors share stewardship of the community land, orchard, and organic gardens, and enjoy seasonal gatherings.
