2 mile guided hike along Penny's Bend. This hike is easy to moderate with one short, steep stretch that rewards with a bluff-top river view.

Event Details

This trail passes through open fields, deep forests, and rocky outcrops in less than two miles. Easy to moderate walking with one short, steep stretch that rewards with a bluff-top view of the river.

Penny’s Bend is a horseshoe bend in the river formed by diabase rock. The underlying diabase here makes the soil basic, supporting plants unusual to the Piedmont. Spring wildflowers abound, including spectacular displays of Dutchman’s Breeches some years
. If there have been recent rains, parts of the trail may be muddy and a walking stick is helpful. Link to a map of the trails at Penny’s Bend:
