Positioned in the center of the Reasonover Watershed this property holds the headwaters of The Reasonover Creek; Wildcat Creek, Reasonover Creek, South Prong of the Green River and Puncheon Creek. These are feed but several other unnamed tributaries that bubble up all over these magnificent mountains.

Long range views over DuPont State Forest, The Green River Valley and the Blue Ridge Parkway are found from all most all of the property. When the leaves fall in the winter you are also treated to views of the Piedmont of South Carolina similar to those observed from Pretty Place.
If 729 acres is too big for you then consider these options. The property natural falls into three distinct parcels 502 acres, 104 and 123.

The property shares its boundary with a limited number of private parties with over 80% of its boundary shared with 4 parties. The two largest are The Green River Preserve and YMCA camp Greenville these summer camps have protected their lands against development with private conservation easements and deed restrictions against development. The third is a church retreat which is also under conservation easement and the forth is a private estate owner who is actively perusing a conservation plan.
The southern Boundary shared with YMCA camp Greenville runs the top of the ridge to the highest point on the property Little Rich Mountain with and elevation of 3340 ft. This boundary is also the NC/SC state line and the Continental divide.

The 729 acres creates a natural land bridge between DuPont State forest to the North and The Mountain to Bridge Wilderness to the South. This tract could serve as the only property to link both State Parks. DuPont Forest is one of the State’s newest Parks and offers 10,000 acres with over 90 miles of single tract and logging trails for biking, hiking and horseback. DuPont Forest is also famous for its spectacular waterfalls including High falls, Triple falls and Bridal Veil.
Across the State line in South Carolina you will find two state parks and more than 10,000 acres. Access to this area can be had from either Cesar’s Head State Park or Jones Gap State Park. The name Mountain Bridge refers to the two watersheds that are within the boundaries of this area, The Table Rock watershed and the Poinsett watershed. This is the most extensive trail system in South Carolina. Most of the trails are well marked and easy to follow. The trails range from easy creek hikes to strenuous loop hikes that can take all day. What makes this a fun destination is that most anyone of any hiking skill level can enjoy this area.
