Conservation of this property protects water quality in tributaries to the right prong of Mill Creek in the Catawba River basin from sedimentation and polluted runoff. Less than a half mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the property features beautiful rural scenery for visitors and locals alike. The property sits within the Pinnacle Mountain/Mill Creek Natural Area designated by the NC Natural Heritage Program. Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy placed a conservation easement on the property in 1997.
