This 16-acre parcel is located just down Orchard Road from The Orchard at Altapass near Little Switzerland on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The property, in McDowell County, lies within more than 3,600 acres that CTNC has already protected in the immediate area, including the Altapass Orchard. Owner Kit Trubey donated this tract to CTNC to help raise money to purchase the conservation easement on the nearby Orchard at Altapass.
