richardson taylor preserve

Just two random ordinary pics from our walk today at the Richardson Taylor Preserve north of Greensboro.

Brian and I took a long walk today at the Richardson-Taylor Preserve north east of Greensboro near Lake Townsend.

I didn’t know about this one until I read about it in the local Pearson Audubon Nature Notes, which is an e-mail that I love to get.

From Audubon: “This 440-acre preserve is composed primarily of mature forest and beaver marshes. Designated as a “passive use park,” the preserve is mostly undeveloped and has no facilities such as restrooms or water fountains. However, it offers about four miles of marked trails beginning at the parking lot on Plainfield Road that has an information kiosk with a trail map.”

It’s nice because there are few people there. You can have it to yourself, just you and the nature. The trails are lengthy and numerous. One eventually interfaces with the Greenway near Strawberry Road. That one would take some planning. We’re going to look into it.
