Jeffress-Park

Milepost: 271.6 | County: Ashe | Acres: 72 | Hiking: No

This property will add 72 acres to E.B. Jeffress Park across the Parkway from The Cascades near milepost 271. Five springs originate or flow through the property, which form Pine Swamp Creek, a tributary of the South Fork New River. Permanent protection of this property will enhance water quality, wildlife habitat, and preserve seven-tenths of a mile of boundary to the Parkway. In 2016, Blue Ridge Conservancy received this property as a generous donation from the heirs of Philip Logan.
