Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy purchased this property in 2011 because it provides a protected buffer to the Asheville watershed. Approximately four miles of streams flow through the property, including a portion of Laurel Branch and several of its unnamed tributaries. Elevations range from 3,200 to 4,960 feet above sea level.
