This protected area consists of the upper portion of a cove ringed by Tanbark Ridge on the west, Swan Mountain to the east, and a connecting ridge running between the two mountains. The parcel adjoins the Blue Ridge Parkway for over half a mile and is located near the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, providing dramatic views of Jones Cove and the Riceville valley. The landowner donated a conservation easement on the property to Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy in 2007.
