Two adjacent properties form a corridor of protected land between the Blue Ridge Parkway to the north and the Thurmond Chatham Game Land to the south. Located on Little Grandfather Mountain, these properties straddle the Alleghany/Wilkes County line and contain headwater streams of the New and Yadkin Rivers. The protected land is highly visible to Parkway travelers in the Laurel Springs area. CTNC protected an 84-acre property and BRC protected a 231-acre property, both with conservation easements.
