The Top of South Carolina Tract will be added to the decades-long effort of protecting key parcels along the Mountain Bridge Wilderness. This property contains the northern extension of the State of South Carolina, with the North Carolina border and the continental divide being its property lines. This parcel also contains the absolute headwaters of Matthews Creek, which is impaired by a small farm pond but which could be restored to its natural state, with great benefits to the Creek. The parcel is an intact mountain forest, providing critical habitat for wildlife. Species documented on the property include black bear, red fox, skunk, deer, wild turkey, woodcock, and dozens of migratory songbirds. This property is highly accessible from Happy Acres road on the North Carolina side of the Blue Ridge and from the Watson Cooper Heritage Preserve in South Carolina. The stunning million dollar views at the top of this property offer some of the best in the state. The Top of SC Tract will be open to the public for hiking, bird watching, and other forms of passive recreation.
